Concerto Concert to Include Student Soloists
WILMORE, Ky. — Four students will showcase their talents during the Asbury University Orchestra’s Concerto Concert on Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m. in Akers Auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.
Every other year, music students compete for the opportunity to perform with the orchestra. One performer or group of performers in the categories of keyboard, vocal or orchestral instrument is selected. The winners from the Fall 2011 competition and their solo pieces include:
- Hannah Dornon ’14, “Concerto for Flute in G Major,” by Johann Joachim Quantz
- Sarah Finehout ’12, “Concerto for Piano in D Minor,” by Johann Sebastian Bach
- Hope Tellifero ’13 and Hope Tumblin ’12, “Laudamus Te,” by Vivaldi (Soprano duet)
In addition to accompanying these works, the Orchestra, directed by Dr. Ronald W. Holz, will perform two symphonies from the classical era: “Sinfonia” to the opera “The Good Daughter,” by Nicolai Piccini, and “Symphony in D Major” by G.B. Sammartini.
“All five works come from the 18th century and represent a refined high point in Western classical art music,” Holz said.
