TICKETS | 7pm Trianon Theatre
Conducted by SJCO Associate Conductor Anthony Quartuccio, our EMERGING ARTIST CONCERT
shines a bright spotlight on the future of music!
Violinist Julian Rhee, 2018 winner of the Klein International String Competition, has been establishing himself as a prominent prominent performer across the US, having appeared with numerous American orchestras, toured Argentina and Uruguay as a concerto soloist and in 2018 named a Presidential Scholar for the Arts, Aspen Music Festival Fellow and National YoungArts Foundation winner.
Clarinetist Ray Wyant, a Bellarmine College Prep senior, performed with the Tanglewood Institute Young Artists Orchestra (2017), was the winner of the 2018 Nova Vista Young Artist Solo Competition and a top 5 finalist at the Philadelphia International Music Festival (2018). Ray will be pursuing a degree in music performance.
Brenna Dickson is the winner of the 2019 Allen Strange Memorial Composition Prize for San José State University composition majors. Her work being premiered on this concert, the Night Lark, is an inspired continuation of the concept behind Vaughn Williams’ The Lark Ascending.
Our very own senior youth orchestra plays side-by-side with SJCO on the second half of the concert, as we bid farewell to 9 graduating seniors embarking on new adventures.
