The Prescott Chamber Orchestra presents spring concert April 25
The Prescott Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Philip Kuhns, will present a program of classical music featuring International Steinway Concert Artist James D'leon on Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m. and again on Saturday, April 26, at 2:30 p.m.
D'leon will play the Beethoven "Piano Concerto Number 3 in C Minor." Both performances will be held at the American Lutheran Church, 1085 Scott Drive, Prescott.
D'Leon was graduated with top honors from Temple University and later received the doctor of musical arts degree from the Eastman School of Music. His selection as International Steinway Concert Artist in 2009 was followed by appearances with the most prestigious orchestras in England, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Canada and most of the United States. He continually receives rave reviews for his performances.
The concert program will include "Overture in D Major" by Franz Joseph Haydn, "Serenade Lyrique" by Edward Elgar and "Masques et Bergamasques" by Gabriel Faure.
In keeping with the mission of the Prescott Chamber Orchestra to promote performances by young musicians, the concert will also feature flute soloist, Rachael Zea, performing "Il Pastore Svizzero" by Pietro Morlacchi. Zea is a senior at Bradshaw Mountain High School and has been studying music since she was 9 years old. A regular entrant in the annual competitions sponsored by the Yavapai Symphony Guild and the Prescott Center for the Arts, she has first place awards in at least six events, including the Chuck Pfeiffer Award for the Fine Arts Scholarship Competition in 2011.
