2019-2020 Season 

Salute to Youth
Feb. 9, 2020

An inspiring presentation of music by the world’s finest composers brought to life by local performers brimming with youthful energy as well as mature skill and insight.


With the generous support of the Margaret Beelard Community Foundation, Maestro Semyon Lohss and the Solano Symphony Orchestra accompany three winners of the 2019 Young Artists Competition. Performing on the bassoon, Matthew Rasmussen plays the stirring Bassoon Concerto by von Weber; at the keyboard, Adrian Pu performs the brilliant Finale of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5; and Senzel Ahmady, winner of the vocal division, sings arias from the operas Susannah and Carmen.


The program also showcases ensembles of string and wind players in pieces dedicated to these instrument families. The players of the Vacaville High School Premiere Orchestra—Music Director, Melinda Packer—join the strings of the SSO in the Suite for String Orchestra by Frank Bridge, and the players of The Wind Ensemble of Vanden High School—Music Director, Mason St. Pierre—join the SSO winds in the dramatic “El Camino Real” by Alfred Reed. The full orchestra and cast of young players then fill the stage to perform the thrilling Concert Suite from the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, by Patrick Doyle.
