I got this from our own Phillip Bush via email, and thought I’d share it. I’ve heard him play before. He’s amazing:

Dear friends,
I wanted to pass along word that this coming Saturday, Feb. 22nd, I will be joining the South Carolina Philharmonic as soloist for the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1. The concert is at the Koger Center in Columbia and begins at 7:30 PM. Also on the program, a short work composed by my UofSC colleague John Fitz Rogers, and the Dvorak 7th Symphony.
I’m very excited about the opportunity to once again share the stage and make music with Morihiko Nakahara and the wonderful players of the SC Phil at Koger.  The Beethoven is part of the SC Philharmonic’s (and many other music organizations’) celebration of 2020 being the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. It’s a grand and fun piece, with a very beautiful middle movement and a boisterous finale. An early work, it shows a lot of the influence of Haydn and Mozart, and it’s plenty challenging for the soloist (but always fun to play!).
More info on tickets and the concert itself can be found at the following SC Phil website:
If you’re looking for something to do Saturday night, I hope you’ll consider joining us. Morihiko and the SC Phil are a tremendous cultural asset to our Midlands region, and I am so honored to be able to be a guest with them on this occasion to help them celebrate Beethoven’s 250th!
with best wishes,
