Please come out and spend a Friday evening in support for our Olde St. Augustine’s Parish Music Director Kim Barroso will play American composer George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F-Major with the Ambler Symphony Orchestra on April 11th beginning at 7:30 pm at Wissahickon High School – a truly fitting work as he welcomes his citizenship this year.

      A graduate of the Philippine High School for the Arts, Kim Rojo Celestino Barroso completed his undergraduate studies at Winthrop University in South Carolina and Masters degrees in Piano Performance and Piano Chamber Music Accompanying at Temple University, where he studied with Dr. Eugene Barban, Harvey Wedeen and Lambert Orkis.

      He is currently an adjunct faculty and Artist-in-Residence at Temple University and Rutgers University – Camden. He also directs music liturgy and conducts the choir at St. Augustines Church in Old City, Philadelphia.

     Highly sought in the Delaware Valley region, Kim performs and collaborates in more than ten recitals and concerts each semester. His recent accomplishment include his second season as house accompanist for Larry MacKenna’s New Voices Cabaret at the Society Hill Playhouse, host performer for the Philippine Ambassador’s guests in Washington DC and having musically directed his first opera with the Delaware Valley Opera Company’s production of Verdi’s “Rigoletto” last spring.

He also performs as soloist with local orchestras such as the Ambler Symphony, Orchestra Society of Philadelphia, and Olney Symphony, and has performed at venues such as Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall, the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and the Mann Center for the Performing Arts.

      Let’s get together to celebrate a wonderful evening with friends on this piano concerto.
