Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra presents

Back Down the Danube!

The ‘journey’ down the famous European river continues with Julian Pellicano leading WSO soloists and the orchestra on a return trip down the Danube. Join us for an evening where we will celebrate even more musical treasures from the region that connects people around the world through song, dance, celebration and, of course… the Viennese Waltz!

Julian Pellicano, conductor

Conductor Julian Pellicano has rapidly established himself as a leading interpreter of music across a broad spectrum of genres, traditions, and time periods, leading the Winnipeg Free Press to proclaim that “his versatility is truly astonishing.” Whether it be traditional and contemporary symphonic repertoire, classical and modern ballet, opera, films live with orchestra, pops, musical theater, multi-media productions, workshops, or his carefully programmed concerts for young listeners, Julian brings an incisive musicality and collaborative spirit to every performance.

Julian’s career grew out of unconventional beginnings, performing as a self-taught drummer, percussionist, timpanist, and accordionist, in styles ranging from folk music to blues and jazz, rock and punk, as well as more traditional ensembles and orchestras. He went on to study percussion at the Peabody Conservatory under Jonathan Haas, the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden under Anders Loguin, and the Yale School of Music under Robert Van Sice, where he was also a member of the critically acclaimed Yale Percussion Group. As a percussionist, he has performed in concert halls and festivals in North America, Europe and Asia and was notably the percussionist for the legendary composer Mauricio Kagel conducting his own music in one of his final concert tours throughout the Netherlands. He also holds a degree in Philosophy from The Johns Hopkins University.
