Nicholas Roth to perform June 14

ELKHART — Organizers with the Elkhart County Symphony announce that the group’s next concert will feature pianist and Elkhart native Nicholas Roth.

The concert is titled “Michiana Roots” and will take place June 14 at 8 p.m. in The Lerner Theater in downtown Elkhart. Roth will perform the Saint-Saens “Piano Concerto” with the symphony. The guest conductor will be Brian Groner.

Tickets are available from the Lerner Box Office by calling 574-293-4469, or online at thelerner.com. Groups of 10 or more gain a 25 percent discount by using code ORCH1025.

The winner of the “Wanna Bea Conductor” contest will also be revealed during the concert. Every dollar donated to the symphony on behalf of a candidate counts as a vote.

Concert organizers said Roth began formal studies at age 13, receiving critical acclaim for his appearances by the age of 18. He appeared as soloist with the St. Louis Symphony and the Indianapolis Symphony under Raymond Leppard, among others. Roth has been featured in recitals and festivals throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Serbia and Spain. He is a Yamaha Artist in Education, a Beethoven Fellow of the American Pianists Association, and has won first prizes in the chamber music competitions of Tortona and Pietra Ligure, Italy.

Roth has a doctor of musical arts degree from Michigan State University, artist diploma from the Hochschule für Musik in Munich, and master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Indiana University, where he was the recipient of the School of Music’s highest honors.

Roth is associate professor of piano at Drake University. His recordings with Blue Griffin Recording have garnered favorable reviews in “Fanfare,” “American Record Guide,” “International Record Review” and “Gramophone.”
