Austin Civic Orchestra Presents: Pearl Amster Youth Concerto Festival
Austin Civic Orchestra is honored to perform with three of Austin's talented youth for the 28th year in a concert that tops off the annual concerto competition. Held this year at Anderson High School's Performing Arts Center on Saturday, March 1, the concert will open with the orchestra performing the Andantino and March movements from Hindemith's Symphonic Metmorphosis. Then for a real treat, the audience will be dazzled by the performances of 17-year-old violinist Ann Cho, 15-year-old pianist Jonathan Qi and 13-year-old violinist Margaret Seo.
The orchestra is offering a free raffle with the prize of winning a seat in the orchestra during part of the concert for a few lucky youth in the audience. Children and youth 18 and under can attend this performance free of charge.
