Soloists will be in the spotlight for the final concert of the Louisiana Sinfonietta’s season at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 19, in the LSU School of Music Recital Hall on Dalrymple Drive.
Founder and music director Dinos Constantinides will conduct.
The sinfonietta will welcome back a former member, violinist Lauren Davis, who will return to Baton Rouge to perform the Felix Mendelssohn “Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Orchestra.” She will be accompanied by noted pianist Peter Muir.
Now living in Australia, Davis teaches at the Riverina Conservatorium in Wagga Wagga and is a performing member of numerous ensembles in the country. Muir lives in New York, and in addition to performing in the U.S. and abroad, is director of the Institute for Music and Health, a nationally recognized center pioneering the use of music for well-being.
Several of the sinfonietta’s soloists will join these two on the program.
Saxophonist Griffin Campbell will perform the classic Alexander Glazunov “Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Strings,” soprano Loraine Sims will perform Constantinides’ “Olga Songs,” Gabriela Werries will play a piece for harp and orchestra by Maurice Ravel, and Isaac Casal will do an early cello concerto by Joesph Haydn.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for students, and will be available at the door or by visiting louisianasinfonietta.org using PayPal.
