Up Close and Personal with the Philadelphia Orchestra

March 12, 2008


The next concert in our series with the Philadelphia Orchestra's finest musicians will feature Nitzan Haroz, the orchestra's principal trombonist. The concert is on Tuesday, March 4 at 8pm in the Van Rensselaer Ballroom. Our first two concerts, presented by the Westphal College and the Pennoni Honors College, have been well attended so RSVP early to insure your seats. Nitzan Haroz joined The Philadelphia Orchestra as Principal Trombone in September 1995. From 1993 to 1995, he served as Assistant Principal Trombone of the New York Philharmonic and he is the former Principal Trombone of the Juilliard Symphony Orchestra while he was a student there. He has also served as First Trombone of the Israel Defence Forces Orchestra and performed in the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. He won First Prize at the Francois Shapira Competition and has received several America-Israel Cultural Foundation Scholarships.

Mr. Haroz has also been active as a chamber musician. In particular, he has performed frequently with his mother, harpist Adina Haroz. Together they have commissioned and premiered several works for trombone and harp, and have given numerous recitals in such venues as the Meridian International Center in Washington, D.C.,and at the 1990 International Harp Congress in France.

The trombone is an amazingly lyrical and expressive instrument with a nearly endless range of qualities, tones and techniques and Mr. Hartoz's concert promises to be a special.
