In addition to the gold medal in the competition, she was also awarded eight of the eleven special prizes. She will perform the Dvorak Violin Concerto, which she played in the final competition at Indianapolis.

Music Director and Conductor Brian Dollinger will also lead the orchestra in Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, written for the composer’s wife, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony #3, known as his “Scottish” symphony, and dedicated to Queen Victoria.
