Five Soloists Featured in Young Artist Concert

Posted: March 11, 2015

Buffalo State’s  Philharmonia Orchestra will present its sixth annual Young Artist Concert on Tuesday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center at Rockwell Hall. The concert features solos by five Buffalo State music majors who won the 2014–2015 Young Artist Competition held in December.

“This is a rigorous, very formal audition process before a panel judges who are not affiliated with Buffalo State,” said ​Paul Ferington, Philharmonia director and lecturer of music. “To have a chance to perform a solo with a high-level orchestra is an excellent credential these students can put on their resumes.”

Formed in fall 2009, the Philharmonia is an auditioned college-community orchestra composed of Buffalo State music majors and non-majors, as well as experienced community and professional musicians.  

The selected soloists are: flutist Tatiana Brewer; violist Emily Bauerlein; violinist Sarah Rice; soprano Sarah Tripi; and baritone Matthew Bannister. They will perform works of Mozart, including duets from Don Giovanni and The Magic Flute, and selected movements from Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola, and Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 1 in G

Other works on the program include the music of Dvorak’s In Nature’s Realm Overture, Ippolitov-Ivanov’s Caucasian Sketches, and Anderson’s tribute The Girl I Left Behind Me from his Irish Suite.

Tickets are $10 and are available at the Rockwell Hall Box Office, by phone at (716) 878-3005 or online. Students are admitted for free, but still must obtain a ticket.
