Cal Poly Symphony’s Winter Concert will showcase the talents of student soloists. In addition, the orchestra will perform music from “Star Trek” and Holst’s “The Planets.” The Student Soloist Showcase will include performances by six instrumentalists, all winners of the Cal Poly Music Department’s Solo Competition in November.
The soloists are Grant Smith, who will perform Josef Rheinberger’s Organ Concerto No. 2, third movement Victor Wei, who will play Takashi Yoshimatsu’s Saxophone Concerto “Cyber-bird,” Op. 59, second movement Justin Privitera, who will play Franz Strauss’ Horn Concerto, Op. 8, third movement Nico Borst, who will perform Joseph Haydn’s Piano Concerto No. 11 in D Major, first movement and the duo Clay X. Froelich, violin, and Laila Zaidi, viola, who will play Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Sinfonia Concertante,” KV 364, first movement.
The soloists represent a variety of majors and several colleges on campus: civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, software engineering, mathematics, and music.
The orchestra will also perform Michael Giacchino’s suite from “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” and Gustav Holst’s “Jupiter,” from “The Planets.”
