New World Symphony: Concerto Showcase

Sat 24 Mar, 2018 - Sun 25 Mar, 2018

In a popular all-concerto program—a staple of the NWS program—select Fellows take the coveted spotlight as winners of this season’s concerto competition, an intense contest where Fellows compete head-to-head armed with their favorite solo work.

The concert opens with lush, cascades by the harp in Reinhold Glière’s dream-like Concerto featuring Chloe Tula. Rewind over 130 years for the classical cheerfulness and regal heralding of Johann Hummel’s demanding Trumpet Concerto, performed by Ansel Norris, and the playful bravura of Carl Maria von Weber’s Bassoon Concerto captured perfectly by Darren Hicks. Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto, once dubbed “unplayable,” is the ultimate showstopper by Emerson Millar, as it seamlessly shifts from lush beauty to breakneck brilliance. Join to celebrate the immeasurable talent and accomplishments of the young musicians who call the New World Symphony home.
