Orange Youth Orchestra presents our 2016 Concerto Concert on Saturday 12th November at 3:30pm. A concerto is the opportunity for a solo instrumentalist to shine in front of an orchestra.
Each year young musicians audition for a chance to be a soloist at our annual Concerto Concert. This year’s winners are Molly Straney, Sophie McKay and Rebekah Rae. These students and the Orange Youth Orchestra prepare all year for this concert, it a pinnacle of their work.
The Orange Youth Orchestra is conducted by Prem Love and will feature Molly Straney with a Violin Concerto in C Major by Kabalevsky, Sophie McKay and Rebekah Rae with Concert Piece No. 1 for clarinet duo by Mendelssohn.
The Concerto Concert competition winners have had a very busy year. Molly Straney has recently completed her HSC and is completing her Duke of Edinburgh Award. She completed her Certificate of Performance in violin with the Australian Music Examination Board in 2015. Molly has been a student of the Orange Regional Conservatorium from a young age and is under the tutelage of Alina Zborowski. Rebekah Rae is in year 11 and beginning her HSC prep already.
