Alliance Symphony Orchestra
The Alliance Symphony Orchestra will present their spring concert on Sunday, April 28 at 3 p.m. in the Brush Performance Hall of the Giese Center for the Performing Arts.
Mount Union held its Solo con tutti competition for current students to audition to perform as featured soloists in the concert. Two students were selected from those auditions.
First place winner pianist Samuel Atkinson, a mechanical engineering and music major from Carrollton, Ohio will perform the Molto allegro con fuoco movement from Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in G Minor. Music education major Kaitlyn Slezak, a mezzo soprano of Hermitage, Pennsylvania who earned the runner up position in the competition will sing a recitative and aria from Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice: “Ahime, dove trascorsi?” and “Cha faro senza.”
Conductor Eric Benjamin, music faculty member at Mount Union, will conclude this program with Brahms’ Symphony No. 4 in E minor.
