The Westminster College Symphony Orchestra will present its spring concert at 7:30 p.m., Friday, April 28, in Orr Auditorium on Westminster’s campus.
The orchestra, under the direction of Dr. Melinda H. Crawford Perttu, associate professor of music, will feature two student concerto/aria competition winners—Dalton Stoops ’25, a junior music education major from Warren, Ohio, on trumpet performing the first movement of Böhm’s Concerto in F and soprano Kacie Rumbaugh ’22, a senior vocal performance major from Beaver Falls, Pa., singing Pamina’s aria “Ach, ich fühl’s (Ah, I can feel it)” from Mozart’s Magic Flute.
Dr. Amy Simpson ’86 of Murrysville, Pa., will guest perform Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No.2—a staple of orchestral literature and one of the most beloved, and hardest, of the piano concerto repertoire—with the orchestra.
The orchestra will round out the program with Berlioz’s Hungarian March from the Damnation of Faust.
The concert is free and open to the public.
