Purchase Symphony Orchestra presents Concerto Competition Winners
Mina Kim, Conductor
Wang Yuan, clarinet
Isaiah Figueroa, euphonium
The talent of our Conservatory of Music students will be on display this evening. Featuring the winners of the 2017-2018 Concerto Competition, these concertos convey classical sweetness (Spohr), and funky, modern excitement (Jenkins). The concert opens with the Preludes (Act I and III) from Lohengrin - old-school orchestral music that resonates with its fervor and virtuosity.
Richard Wagner: Preludes (Act I and III) from Lohengrin
Louis Spohr: Clarinet Concerto No. 1, Op. 26
Karl Jenkins: Euphonium Concerto
