Students from USU's Department of Music are featured in the "Concerto Evening" Thursday, March 28, 7:30 p.m., Kent Concert Hall, Chase Fine Arts Center.

The Utah State University Symphony Orchestra is celebrating the winners of a student competition in “Concerto Evening” Thursday, March 28, in the Kent Concert Hall, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus.

“For this concert, we celebrate the talent and accomplishments of our winners,” said Sergio Bernal, associate professor and director of orchestra in the Caine College of the Arts. “These soloists represent the wonderful teaching offered by the instructors here and the Symphony Orchestra is excited to accompany them.”

This concert highlights four students who won the concerto competition held annually in December. The winners this year are Marianna Cardon, French horn; Sara Mason, piano; Nathan Southwick, violin; and Clifford Tam, clarinet.

“Winning the competition is a huge honor, especially considering the incredible amount of talent that was showcased at both the preliminary and final rounds,” said Nathan Southwick, a senior studying violin performance. “To perform Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto in A Major, K. 219, a fun and eminent work, with friends and colleagues is an incredible opportunity and I’m looking forward to it.”

Tickets for “Concerto Evening” are $10 adults, $8 seniors and youth, $5 USU faculty and staff and free for USU students with valid ID. For tickets and more information, visit the Caine College of the Arts Box Office in room 139-B of the Chase Fine Arts Center, call 435-797-8022 or see the college’s Production Services website.
