In March, the Orchestra plays its Young Artist concert, with a concerto or solo piece performed by the winner. As a prelude before the Friday and Saturday concerts, we also present a short recital by other competition honorees. There are so many excellent young musicians who audition. The recital allows us to recognize and appreciate more of their hard work and talent.
This year, 2019, the winners are all string players.
The winner is cellist Hayden Idson. He will play Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme. He is 13 years old and lives in Jamaica Plain.
The musicians invited to play recitals are:
- Cellist Zehavi Rodriguez, also 13 years old, from Dorchester
- Violinist Hannah Ryu, 17 years old, from Lexington
We’ll have more news about recital schedules and about the musicians soon!
