Emerging international violinist Heidi Hatch, with versatile pianist Bryan Pezzone, will be performing on Wednesday, June 29, on the Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s virtual Music at Noon series, 12 to 12:30 p.m.
The show is free to watch online, sponsored by the Friends of Music at PPC.
Hatch began studying music with her father, violist Peter Hatch, before she was four years old. Even from such an early age, her talent was precocious and has continued to impress all who hear her. The legendary Soviet-era violin guru, Professor Abram Shtern, her former mentor, once described her as “a rare talent, a natural on stage… and her playing is possessed of an emotional urgency and musical understanding far beyond her years.”
In December, 2005, Hatch was featured in an interview in the Spanish Magazine “Melómano.”
Pezzone maintains an active freelance career performing and recording in the Los Angeles area since 1987. He holds a degree from the Eastman School of Music, and is well known as being comfortable in classical, contemporary, and improvisational styles. He performs with nearly every established orchestra in Southern California, including the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the New West Symphony, the Pasadena Symphony, the Long Beach Symphony, MUSE-IQUE, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, among others.
Pezzone was the principal pianist with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra from its inception in 1991 through 1999.
