The Berry College Symphony Orchestra will host its spring concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday (April 15) in the Ford Auditorium.
The concert will feature Berry students Jarod Holland, Grace McMullen, and Ahmad Pruitt. McMullen is the winner of this year's Rome Symphony Concerto Competition.
Each student will perform a selected piece and be accompanied by the orchestra. McMullen will perform Movement 1 from Piano Concerto No. 2, by Dmitri Shostakovich, Pruitt will play Samba For Trombone, composed by Chair of Fine Arts and Professor Stan Pethel, and Holland will perform Movement 1 from Concerto in A Major for Clarinet, by W.A. Mozart. The orchestra will also perform Peer Gynt Suite No.1, by Edvard Grieg, and Finlandia, by Jean Sibelius.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for these students to show their talents" commented Visiting Assistant Professor and Director Mirna Ogrizovic-Ciric, . "Not many musicians their age get the chance to perform alongside a symphony orchestra."
The concert is free and open to the public.
