Born blind, and severely autistic, Derek Paravicini plays entirely by ear. With a repertoire of many thousands of pieces he has memorized, as well as being a talented improvisor, Derek is featured in concert halls across the US and Europe.

Mr. Paravicini will perform popular, jazz, and classical works in a program also featuring Los Angeles Philharmonic Concertmaster Martin Chalifour in Vaughan Williamsí The Lark Ascending. Members of the Mainly Mozart Youth Orchestra perform Rachmaninoff Vocalise side-by-side with the all-star Festival Orchestra.
