Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra Honors Young Performers in Concerto Competition
May 22, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm| 20; seniors and museum members $10; children 16 and under free.
The Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra is proud to present its first-ever Young Performers Concerto Competition. The three finalists – 17-year-old cellist Ethan Cobb, 15-year-old violinist Qingyu Chen, and 19-year-old clarinetist Ki-Deok Park – will perform single movements from concertos by Elgar, Dvorak, and Mozart. They will be judged by a panel of distinguished music performers and educators who will announce the winner at the end of the concert. Prizes awarded will be $1000 for first place, $500 for second place, and $300 for third place. This event marks an exciting new direction for Brooklyn’s oldest existing symphony orchestra; with the opportunity and recognition it gives to a new generation of local talent, everyone wins – not least Brooklyn’s music community.
As part of the program, the Orchestra will also perform Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin and Claude Debussy’s Petite Suite.
