2017 Honors Recital
The Sun Valley Summer Symphony is proud to present its School of Music Honors Recital on Sunday, April 30, at 6 p.m. in the Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater at the Community Campus in Hailey. This is the School of Music’s signature concert of the spring season, featuring 21 students selected to appear in the program based on their outstanding performances in auditions for a panel of faculty members.
Symphony School of Music string, piano and voice students will perform a wide variety of classical and contemporary pieces from Chopin, Bruch, Grieg and Vivaldi to Gershwin and Rodgers and Hart. The concert is free of charge and open to the public.
“This performance is an opportunity for us to showcase the exceptional work that goes on during the year at the School of Music,” said Kim Gasenica, educational director at the School of Music.
The concert is expected to include about 90 minutes of music and the announcement of the Carol Nie Outstanding Music Student Award winner. The annual award is named in honor of former Symphony board president and founder of the School of Music Carol Nie.
The Sun Valley Summer Symphony School of Music provides tuition-free, year-round music-educational programs for students grades 4 through 12.
