Violinist Hana Chang of Lexington, age 11, will play Mendelssohn’s Violin Concert in e minor with the orchestra. Concerts are January 30 & 31, 2015. Our Music Director Richard Pittman told the orchestra of the results at our recent rehearsal with great praise for Hana’s mature musicality and personal interpretation.
There were two other honorees who are invited to play pre-concert recitals in January. Both play the viola. Concerto Competition entrants on the viola are somewhat rare; and this year we have discovered two excellent young musicians on that instrument.
Chris Rodger-Beadle, age 17, of Hingham and Walnut Hill School, is invited to play on Saturday January 31 and Nicholas Gallitano, age 17, of Chestnut Hill, is invited to play on Friday January 30. More information later on the concert schedule and their programs.
