This stunning piece in the video below is just one of the compositions we are performing with our own HVS formed orchestra and conductor Joel Lazar on November 16th.
As we wait for the full score and orchestra parts, I edited the parts this morning for our soloists and am so excited for Shankar Balasubramanian and Olivia Chen to experience this excitement of this piece up close.
We are being sponsored by The Symphony of the Potomac for this event and will be hosted at the gorgeous First Congregational United Church of Christ in DC, our site for all HVS events this year.
Arvo Part is the most performed contemporary composer for three years in a row and we can hear why. Take a listen!
While the students juggle multiple deadlines for upcoming applications and competitions, this week also marks the beginning of our work with piano and in preparation for solos performances with orchestra on November 16th.
We are so fortunate to have Symphony of the Potomac presenting our students in a special event with conductor, Joel Lazar this year. Maestro Lazar has been a longtime supporter of the studio and our students performing solos that evening couldn’t be in better hands. With a first half featuring students performing with pianist, Brad Clark, and a second half presenting our students performing with harp and on works by Arvo Part with string orchestra, this is an evening I know we will all remember for a long time to come.
