A Tribute to Thelma Hunter

Loren with Thelma InsertJoin the Sinfonia for a concert featuring Loren Fishman, piano, in memory of Thelma Hunter. Loren will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1.

Thelma Hunter was an important and honored member of the Minnesota music community. She performed numerous times with the Sinfonia, and was a vocal supporter of the orchestra and its mission of community service.

Loren enjoyed Ms. Hunter’s admiration and encouragement since they met ten years ago. A Sinfonia Audience favorite, Loren has been praised for his ability to communicate with audiences through a combination of colorful technique, conviction, and musical sensitivity.
