MYA’s orchestras will perform again on May 3rd at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall. The 6:30 concert, Ignite your Aspirations, will feature Symphony orchestra in performances of two major works. They will first be joined by violinist and MYA parent Ilya Kaler, who will perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Kaler is a world-renowned soloist and the only violinist to win Gold Medals in the prestigious International Tchaikovsky Competition, International Sibelius Competition, and Paganini Competition. Symphony Orchestra will also perform Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. This work incited a riot when premiered in 1913 because it was so revolutionary in nearly every aspect - its use of rhythm and dissonant chords continues to influence composers today. More than one hundred years later, this remarkable piece remains well beyond the realm of the commonplace, and will make for a very exciting conclusion to this year’s concert season.
