Each year, traditional and Suzuki students in piano, violin, viola, cello and flute have the opportunity to audition for the Annual DePaul Concerto Festival for Young Performers held by DePaul’s Community Music Division in January. Winners perform a movement of a concerto with the Oistrach Symphony Orchestra, led by Mina Zikri. The orchestra is made up of recent grads and young professionals from the Chicago Area.
This is the second of two programs in 2011 featuring winners from the competition. You can listen to the first program, featuring music by Shostakovitch, JS Bach, Saint-Saens and more by clicking here.
