“The Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in Palm Beach has tapped Phillip Bergmann as artistic advisor for classical music,” writes Sarah Shay in Wednesday’s (12/22) Musical America (subscription required). “His responsibilities will include the ‘Regional Arts Classical Concert Series,’ entering its 47th season; the ‘Young Artists Series;’ and the ‘Beyond the Stage’ series of pre-concert talks. The current season of the Regional Arts Classical Concert Series includes eight ‘At Eight’ concerts and four ‘At Two’ concerts. Among those scheduled to perform are the Cleveland Orchestra, soprano Renée Fleming, violinist Itzhak Perlman, Branford Marsalis with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields with violinist Joshua Bell. All concerts are held in the Kravis Center’s Alexander W. Dreyfoos Concert Hall. This season’s four-concert Young Artists Series opened on Dec. 16 with pianist Wynona Wang. Bergmann studied opera and vocal performance at Carnegie Mellon University before working as a booking agent in New York for Columbia Artists Management, Inc. (CAMI) and Opus 3 Artists. He relocated to South Florida in 2016 to head music and film programming at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, where he served for four years.”
