Young Artists Concerto Competition Winners
The next Masterworks Series concert is Saturday, February 3rd at 7:30 p.m. at the Wilson Center. The evening includes a musical premiere, performances by our Young Artists, a food drive, and pre-concert entertainment!
The program includes Borodin’s “Polovtsian Dances” and “Prince Igor Overture” along with a premiere of “The Dance of the Coin,” a multi-media work for film, dance and music composed by Julia Walker Jewell, with choreography by Lesa Rogers Broadhead.
Also featured are the winners of the 41st Annual Richard R. Deas Young Artists Concerto Competition. UNCW Division winner David Walker performs Karel Husa’s “Élégie et Rondeau” for alto saxophone and orchestra and High School Division winner Camden Stohl performs Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 26.
As part of the national “Orchestras Feeding America” initiative, the Wilmington Symphony is hosting a food drive that evening benefiting local food banks. Food collection bins will be in the lobby and display tables will highlight the work of several area food banks. Anyone donating food items will receive a raffle ticket with which to enter in a drawing for one of three awards: Two tickets to Symphony Pops in March; two tickets to Don Giovanni in April; two season tickets for the 2018-2019 Masterworks Series.
Pre-concert entertainment in the main level lobby begins one hour before the concert with a performance by the Dance Theatre of DREAMS.
Single tickets are $25-$35 (plus CFCC fees and NC sales tax) for adults and $10 (plus CFCC fees and NC sales tax) for students. For tickets call 910-362-7999. Group rates are available for 10 or more tickets. The 2017-18 concert season is generously sponsored REEDS Jewelers, and River Bluffs.
