Event Details

Featuring the winners of the student soloist competition and the 20th Century’s all-time symphonic icon, Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Premiered in Paris 106 years ago, the “Rite” remains to this day as “revolutionary and fresh as if it had been composed yesterday,” according to Maestro Carlson. The scoring requires a huge orchestra of virtuoso players, including oddly enough, two Wagner tubas that Corvallis audiences are most accustomed to hearing in Bruckner and Mahler symphonies. To open the program, three or four of the Orchestra’s outstanding students who were winners in the October 25th auditions will be featured in solos and concertos of their choice.
