On Saturday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 23 at 2:00 p.m., a special all-Beethoven concert will highlight the artistry of the Argenta Trio (violinist Stephanie Sant’Ambrogio, cellist Dmitri Atapine, and pianist James Winn), UNR’s resident chamber ensemble. They will perform Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with Maestro Theodore Kuchar and the Orchestra. The program will also feature the Symphony No. 4 and two shorter works, the Turkish March from The Ruins of Athens and the Romance, Op. 50 (with Ms. Sant’Ambrogio as soloist). We’ll also announce our exciting 2014-15 season – the RCO’s fortieth! – at these performances.
Flutist Carmella Cao was the first prize winner in the RCO’s 25th annual College Concerto Competition, which took place January 26 at UNR's Nightingale Concert Hall.
Ms. Cao, now pursuing her doctorate degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and a former student at the University of Nevada, Reno, won the Competition with her performance of Carl Nielsen's Flute Concerto. She will perform with the Reno Chamber Orchestra at the closing concerts of the RCO's 2013-14 season on April 26 and 27, 2014. Read more about Ms. Cao in this article from the UNLV Libraries website (from which our photo of her also comes).
The Competition's second prize went to flutist Michelle Griffin, a University of Nevada, Reno student, who performed Chaminade's Concertino. Third prize went to trumpet player Jef Derderian, also of UNR, who played Telemann's Trumpet Concerto in D.
The RCO extends its congratulations and thanks to all nine Competition participants.
