Student Soloists Competition Winners Concert
The Symphony Orchestra accompanies the winners of the Student Soloists Competition, representing students from across the Keyboard, Instrumental and Vocal/Choral Divisions. The evening features orchestral works by Greig, Elgar, Sibelius and Saint-Saëns; as well as vocal works from Bizet’s Carmen and Gounod’s Faust. In celebration of Black History Month, the orchestra also presents Jessie Montgomery’s Soul Force, inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The one-movement symphonic work evokes a voice that struggles to be heard beyond the shackles of oppression and features elements of popular African American musical styles, such as big-band jazz, funk, hip-hop and R&B.
