Pasadena Community Orchestra Concert to Feature Young Artist Competition Winner
May.17.2013 08.00PM


WHO: Pasadena Community Orchestra

WHAT: Free concert bursts with the vitality and enthusiasm of youth, featuring a brilliant young soloist and works written when the composers were in their twenties.

Young Artist Competition winner Tianpeng Yu (age 22), performs a 20-year-old Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 in E Minor.

The concert's major work is the Firebird Suite of Igor Stravinsky (then age 28), displaying the rhythmic dynamism, vivid orchestral colors, and primitivism for which the composer became famous.

Rounding out the program is the beguiling overture to The Abduction from the Seraglio by a 25-year-old Mozart. A reception follows the concert, at which audience members will have the opportunity to meet the soloist and the other musicians.

WHERE: In the sanctuary of First Church of the Nazarene, 3700 E. Sierra Madre Blvd., Pasadena (just west of Michillinda Avenue). Free parking, wheelchair access.

WHEN: Friday, May 17 at 8 p.m.
