Meredith, NH - The Lakes Region Symphony Orchestra (LRSO) invites you to its season-opening concert on Saturday November 2, 2019 at 7:30pm at Inter-Lakes Auditorium in Meredith.
After a well-deserved summer off, LRSO is back in the saddle fervently preparing for the season opening concert. We are honored to feature the winner of our 2019 Student Concerto and Scholarship Competition, pianist Brigham Parker. Brigham will be performing Tchaikovsky's "Piano Concerto No. 1 in Bb minor, Op. 23", a stunning and instantly recognizable piece many of us will know as one of Liberace's signature works.
The program begins with Gioachino Rossini's illustrious "Overture to the Barber of Seville", which for many of us was the musical star in a Bugs Bunny / Elmer Fudd cartoon collaboration. The November 2nd concert concludes with Tchaikovsky's "Symphony No. 2 - Little Russian", one of his most joyful and energetic symphonies.
The LRSO concerto competition, now entering its 11th year, has been an exciting and successful journey since its inception. Over the years more than 130 incredibly talented middle- and high-school students have auditioned, each competing for scholarships and the opportunity to perform with the LRSO.
This year's winner is remarkable young pianist Brigham Parker. Brigham placed 3rd in last year's competition, so we are particularly thrilled to see his persistence and practice pay off, ushering in Brigham with a well-deserved first place finish. Brigham has been studying piano for nine years and grows his passion for music every day. He was awarded Distinction on the Royal School of Music's highest piano exam and took honors at the New Hampshire Music Teachers Association Solo
