CONTACT JIMMY LIGGINS Copyrighted Material the podium for these two performances which feature the talents of world-renowned pianist Andre Watts. Maestro Gosling, artistic director and conductor of the state's orchestra, has recently returned from guest conducting appearances in Europe and Scandinavia. Guest soloist Watts, the , son of an American Negro Gl and his Hungarian wife, has earned an international reputation for keyboard excellence. At age 29, he already has performed with the major orchestras of the world and in solo recitals throughout the Soviet Union, Japan, the United States, Israel, and South America. Watts began his career before the age of 10 when he performed with the Philadelphia Orchesta. He received national attention when Leonard Bernstein introduced him to millions of television viewers on a New York Philharmonic "Young People's Concert." Later Bernstein engaged the talented young instrumentalist to substitute at the last minute for the ailing Glenn Gould, further enhancing Watts' reputation as one of the keyboard giants of the century. In the enduing years he continuea his piano studies with Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore. His 1 966 European debut with the London Symphony and a debut with the Berlin Philharmonic a year later were followed by a world tour for the United States Department of State. Since that time, Watts has had such honors as playing a state, and giving a concert at the coronation festivitie for the Shah of Iran. On Lincoln Center's "Great Performers" series, Watts is the only artist to have been re-engaged nine years in succession, always performing to capacity crowds. He has been the subject of an hour-long documentary on the National Educational Television Network and also of a CBS ' Camera Three" show. A student of the piano who originally took lessons from his mother, Watts also holds an honorary doctorate from Yale University, the youngest person to be so distinguished in more than 200 years.
