Park ICM's Valentine's Concert has become a community favorite. Produced in collaboration with the Main Street Parkville Association and conducted by Suzanna Pavlovsky, founder, and Artistic Director of Ensemble Eclectica! and founder and Artistic Director of the Palmetto Chamber Orchestra.
During a lot of soul searching, Pavlovsky came to realize that love for the classical arts is dying out with the older generations. She wondered how she could encourage the younger generations to become interested before the classics became a lost art altogether. So, she formed Ensemble Eclectica! in 2016.
For Columbia-based orchestra conductor extraordinaire Suzanna Pavlovsky, music is as important as the air she breathes, and she has dedicated her life to sharing its magic with others. Maestra Pavlovsky, more informally known as Suzanna, says of the role of music in her early life, “The piano was at home when I was born. I was poking on the keys when I was 1 and started formal lessons with my mom when I was 4 years old.”
Ensemble Eclectica! has always done things big.
The 15-piece musical ensemble, led by Maestra Suzanna Pavlovsky, was created in 2015 with the goal of bridging multiple artistic disciplines and spotlighting local performers. Its upcoming August 27 production, “What A Wonderful World,” does just that.
