Column: The adventures of being The Social Seat Guest in The Presidential Box


Commentary by Amy Pauszek

On Nov. 7, I was invited to be the Social Seat Guest in The Presidential Box at The beautiful Carmel Palladium. Who knew it would turn out to be the chance of a lifetime to see The Moscow State Symphony Orchestra AND Violin virtuoso Nadja Salerno-Sonnenburg under the direction of Conductor Pavor Kogan. The night was amazing, I sat mesmerized as the orchestra and special guests captured the audience’s heart and soul with the sounds of Tchaikovsky and Bruch. My task was simple, to tweet about the live concert. However,  I was entranced by the magical sounds and visuals of plucking violin strings, brass horns and the clash of the symbols. I realized  that  The Moscow State Symphony Orchestra is one of the five oldest concert orchestras in Russia and it was playing LIVE right there in Carmel, Indiana. Pavor Kogan stood tall and animated as he commanded the concert and Nadja was purely electrifying as she played flawlessly. Her energy was contagious. The acoustics were mind blowing and at times – so intense that you could of heard a  pin drop during the short dramatic pauses. In the end, my Social Seat Guest Mission became easier as the night went on and my tweets flowed freely to the riveting music that filled the Palladium air.  There were three standing ovations as new and old fans cheered of excitement and left the venue smiling. The Moscow State Symphony Orchestra  continues to tour around the Country and I would highly recommend if given the opportunity, not to miss this live concert. The entire assemble  and company shine and give an performance of a lifetime. Bravo.
