Dakota Valley Symphony and Chorus

Young Artists' Concert and Orchestra Festival

Join us on Sunday, April 23rd at 2 pm as we present a celebration of youthful virtuosity with our 2017 Young Artists Competition winners Emma Taggart and Noah Qiu.

The afternoon will begin with the full orchestra in a performance of Solar, a composition by local composer Jocelyn Hagen. Next, our Young Artists will take the stage to delight the audience. Emma will be performing the Molto Allegro con fuoco from Felix Mendelssohns Piano Concerto No. 1 and Noah wil be performing the Rondo from Johannes Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 1

Closing out the afternoon program we will be joined by the Linden Hills Chamber Orchestra in a stirring perfomance of Mussorgskys Pictures at an Exhibition. This will be a fabulous afternoon of music and we greatly look forward to seeing you there.
