Nakumatsu (and Trudel) Return!

Jon Nakamatsu

We talk with two major artists as they prepare a triumphant return to Toledo: pianist Jon Nakamatsu and TSO Music Director Alain Trudel. Nakamatsu, Gold Medalist of the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, talks about his several appearances with the TSO and what it's like to be returning to live performance after the 15-month hiatus imposed by the pandemic. We also roll out the red carpet for Trudel as he prepares to take up the baton once more with the Toledo Symphony, after a year's absence from the podium (physically, at least). Finally, taking our cue from Nakamatsu's Chopin performance with the TSO, we provide an immersive Frédéric Chopin experience with our quiz of the day!
