On Saturday, Russian-Armenian violin virtuoso Mikhail Simonyan will make his debut performance with the Philharmonic performing signature pieces including Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 and Khachaturian's exhilarating Violin Concerto. The Philharmonic will also feature the American premier of the Concerto for Bandura and Orchestra #4 composed by Sacramento's own Yuriy Oliynyk and played by Ola Oliynyk.
