Starlight Symphony Orchestra to Present “Youth, Strength, and Energy”
Youth Competition Winners
Featured at the April 11th and 12th Performances
The Starlight Symphony Orchestra presents “Experience Musical Inspirations through Emotions - Youth, Strength, and Energy.” They will feature two winners from their Young Artists Competition held in the Fall of 2014. These two winners, Sydney Neugebauer and Vanessa Turner, represent the finest of young musicians in central Texas and are sure to provide a youthful, energetic, and musically strong evening for concert goers.
The first soloist, Sydney Neugebauer, will perform the Carl Maria von Weber Bassoon Concerto, Movements 2 and 3. Sydney is currently a senior at Dripping Springs High School and has been playing the bassoon for seven years. She has performed with the high school marching band as a drum major, a soloist with the 5A All-Region band, and with the Starlight Symphony Orchestra for four years. Sydney is looking forward to attending college in the fall with a double major in bassoon performance and journalism.
The second soloist, Vanessa Turner, will perform the Mozart Konzert A-Dur, Movement One. Vanessa is a Junior at New Braunfels High School and has participated in the SMART Orchestra of San Marcos, the Starlight Symphony Orchestra, a chamber group organized by Stephanie Raby, and the Region 18 Middle and High School Symphony Orchestras. This year she was in the TMEA All-State String Orchestra and she was the All-State winner in her division in 2011 and 2012.
Come out and show your support for our local volunteer musicians as well as these young solo artists.
