Spring Program: Featuring the 2014 Youth Competition Winners ~ Sat-Sun, Apr 26-27, 2014 at 8 pm

Every year, three winners of the Youth Competition are selected to perform with the Symphony. The tradition of spotlighting young musical talents lends itself to an inspiring program. This year's program will also include famous sets of dances: Polovtsian Dances by Russian composer Alexander Borodin, and Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Johannes Brahms. The concert will also feature the Video Games Live Suite, an orchestrated collection of well-known video game music. Please note that both shows are evening concerts this year.

YOUTH WINNERS: This season's winning selections are Haydn's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in D major, movement 3, played by Gad "Zar" Raganas and Gershwin's Concerto in F, movement 1, played on piano by Sonia Copple.

Season Finale: Americana ~ Fri-Sat, May 30-31, 2014 at 8 pm

We open our final concert of the year with Morton Gould's American Salute. Written during WWII, Salute explores and develops the popular war-time tune of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home." Also on the program is Samuel Barber's beloved piece for soprano and orchestra, Knoxville Summer of 1915. This selection is based on a literary work by James Agee, and recalls his idyllic, dreamlike depiction of an evening in the American South. Finishing the program is American composer Randall Thompson's Symphony No. 2. Written in 1931, Thompson's symphony features hints of American jazz and popular music.

CLARA LISLE: We are delighted to have Clara Lisle (Arcata High) return home from England to perform Samuel Barber's lush work with the Eureka Symphony. Clara received her degree in music performance from London's Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in December 2013. Listen to vocal selections by Clara on her website.
