This concert will highlight Lauren Weirich, Senior Violinist from Elkhart Central HS and our 2016 Concerto Competition Gold Medal Winner as soloist with the Symphony. She will be performing the Zergunderweisen Gypsy Aires by Sarasate which is a very exciting and technically amazing piece. A very active student, Lauren is involved with the orchestra and full orchestra at EHS, Color Guard and many other activies. She is the daughter of Kyle and Tracey Weirich, and her performance is much anticipated. Additionally, former winners Maggie Yoder and Andrew Nowicki are both violinists who graduated from Concord HS and are currently music students at IU Bloomington. They will perform the Bach Concerto for Two Violins and chamber orchestra.
There is tremendous excitement in hearing our homegrown talent in this great concert which will finish with the very familiar William Tell Overture by Rossini and under the musical direction of Maestro Brian Groner Learn more about former winners and how it impacted their future dreams.
This concert is co-sponsored by Don and Theresa Gunden and a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission through the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County.
