The Starlight Symphony Orchestra is pleased to present an exceptional concert “Young Artist Showcase.” Enjoy musical masterpieces such as Giochino Rossini’s Italian in Algiers and Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring Orchestral Suite. In addition to these lively and captivating pieces, the Starlight Symphony Orchestra is honored to shine the spotlight on the phenomenal winners of the 2020 Young Artist Solo Competition. The level of artistry our young artists have achieved, at such a young age, is staggering. In this concert series you will hear some memorable performances by three highly talented and charming young people. Our competition was held on Saturday, January 4th – just a few short months ago. We had 38 contestants audition. At the risk of sounding repetitive, each of these kids could easily share the stage with us. It was a hair splitting decision and we narrowed it down to the top stellar three. Lauren Mathews masters the sophistication of Elgar’s cello concerto. Sophie Louie aptly captures the gypsy songs of the Spanish composer Sarasate, and Glenn Choe displays choreographed musical precision in a work by Saint-Saens that he transcribed from violin to marimba. Congratulations go to our three winners of the 2020 Starlight Symphony Orchestra’s Young Artist Competition, Lauren Mathews, Sophie Louie, and Glenn Choe. This is a glimpse into the future and a bright future it is for these young musicians.
