Four Wright State students will perform with Wright State’s University Symphony Orchestra during the 42nd annual Concerto-Aria Night concert.
The concert is Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 8 p.m. in Schuster Hall in the Creative Arts Center. The concert is free and open to the public.
“It’s a concert with talented student winners. The audience can enjoy good music and quality from the School of Music,” said In-Hong Cha, a professor of violin and University Symphony Orchestra conductor. “I would like to invite everyone to this concert and I hope they enjoy the performances by gifted student soloists.”
The four students selected to perform with the orchestras are Jocelyn Hui, a pianist; Jonathan Jacky, a trumpet player; Sydney Scherer, a flutist; and Lisa Burwinkel, a mezzo-soprano singer. They were selected after a thorough audition process.
The University Symphony Orchestra is made up of students and musicians, including alumni and local performers.
“It’s a great opportunity to perform in the orchestra so if anyone is interested, both music majors and any Wright State student can audition,” said Cha. “We receive a lot of applications for an audition every year from both incoming and current students.”
