Winners Highlighted in Concert with the USU Symphony Orchestra
LOGAN— The Utah State University Symphony Orchestra presents “Concerto Evening” at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 10 in the Morgan Theatre located in the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus.
“This concert gives our outstanding music students the opportunity to share their amazing talent with the public,” said Sergio Bernal, director of the USU Symphony Orchestra and associate professor of music in the Caine College of the Arts.
All soloists performing in the concert are winners of the annual student concerto competition. The students will perform their favorite works from their solo repertoire.
“Concerto music is attractive because it highlights the abilities of a soloist but has an orchestra accompanying him or her,” said Bernal.
Students performing include Harrison Sligting and Samantha Bunderson (piano), Amanda Marshall (violin), Clifford Tam (Basset Horn/a member of the clarinet family) and Allysa Packard (vocal). The evening includes works by Rachmaninoff, Gershwin, Mozart, Glazunov and Floyd.
Tickets are $10 general admission, $8 seniors and youth, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with ID. For tickets or more information, visit the CCA Box Office in room L101 of the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s campus, call 435-797-8022 or see the colleges Production Services website (cca.usu.edu).
