Fifteen of the state’s brightest and most-talented young musicians will display their impressive virtuosity and remarkable musicianship at the 2016 Arizona Musicfest Young Musicians Fall Concert this Sunday, including Mesa’s Scott Allen, who plays clarinet and bass clarinet at Mountain View High School.
Students like Allen from area high schools will showcase their abilities on violin, viola, piano, harp, clarinet, voice and cello performing a diverse body of classical solo and ensemble works ranging from composers Debussy and Haydn to Rachmaninoff and Halvorsen at the 1 p.m. performance Oct. 30 at the Musical Instrument Museum, 4725 E. Mayo Blvd. in Phoenix. Tickets are $20.
“These young classical musicians are the best of the best representing Arizona Musicfest competition and scholarship winners,” said Executive and Producing Director Allan Naplan. “Audiences will be astounded by their virtuosity, technique and style.”
The performance is part of Arizona Musicfest’s first-ever Fall Fest, a four-concert schedule also featuring Melissa Manchester, The Lonely Heartstring Band and Mipso and The Midtown Men: The Original Cast of Broadway’s Jersey’s Boys. The Fall Fest goes until Nov. 7.
