Arizona Musicfest: Young Artists

More from this show

Each year, Arizona Musicfest invites young musicians to showcase their talent and artistry on the stage. These musicians are as young as eleven and twelve years old, with competitions falling into a variety of categories, including piano, strings, winds, voice, and more, and it’s an opportunity for young performers to not only get feedback on their playing, but also possibly scholarships. On this Arizona Encore, we’ll wrap up our Arizona Musicfest broadcasts by hearing from a few of these talented musicians, performing works by Camille Saint-Saens, Carl Nielsen, and others.

Plus: while Johann Sebastian Bach’s contemporaries composed, in some cases, hundreds of orchestral suites, Bach himself only produced four. We’ll hear the Festival Orchestra perform the Orchestral Suite No. 3 by Bach, which is perhaps most famous for the second movement Air.

Featuring performances by Arizona Musicfest Festival Orchestra; Robert Moody, conductor; Alexander Tam, piano; Jonathan Edwin Okseniuk, violin; Olga Gorelik, piano; Supriya Weiss, flute; HaeJu Choi, piano; Andrew Kim, clarinet; Shaman Askew, Isaac Brodkin, Sofia Fencken, Rachel Gammill, Katie Johnston, Quinn Pursell, Abby Tam, Sarah Warner, guitar
