Our season opens with the winners of the second Youth Symphony of the Southwest Concerto Competition. After the Overture to Don Giovanni, hear Alex Dergal perform two movements of the Mozart Clarinet Concerto and Thomas Menefee playing Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen, (Gypsy Airs) on his String Bass! Yes, on his String Bass. Galen Kingsley opens the second part of the program with the Arutunian Trumpet Concerto and Connie Zhu will dazzle you with the first movement of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto.
Great music. Great talent. You’ll want to be there. Last year this concert was sold out. Get your tickets and subscriptions early.
