Cellist Ifetayo Ali, junior division winner of the 2017 Sphinx Competition, will be guest soloist at the Wilmington Symphony Orchestra’s opening-night concert on September 16 at the Wilson Center in Wilmington, North Carolina. Ali, age 14, will perform Édouard Lalo’s Cello Concerto in D minor with the orchestra, led by conductor Steven Errante, on a program that also includes Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. This week, Ali has also been in residency at area schools including Castle Hayne Elementary, St. Mary Catholic School, Williston Middle School, Murray Middle School, and Roland-Grise Middle School. She will also participate in a community performance at the Cameron Art Museum on September 13 at 4 pm. “We are honored and privileged to have Ifetayo performing in Wilmington throughout the week,” says Wilmington Symphony Executive Director Reed Wallace. “She embodies the joy and excitement of the music she performs.”
