Every other year Linfield College holds a Concert Competition where students audition to perform with the Linfield Chamber Orchestra. This year there were a total of five winners. Varying from piano to percussion, the very last concert for the Linfield Chamber Orchestra will certainly go out with a bang. Sophomore Tabby Gholi will be performing a piece by Monti titled Csardas. The fast and slow changes in tempo pull in the listener and this gypsy style concerto makes the audience want to dance. Below are some excepts of Tabby Gholi playing a portion of Csardas. The first one is the very beginning of the piece followed by an example of the fast excerpt.
Another one of the concerto winners, Kelsey Garrett ’15 is a percussionist. Specializing in marimba she will be performing the fourth movement of the piece, Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra by Ney Rosauro. Below are two excepts from Garrett’s piece. The first is one the beginning of Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra and the latter is a cadenza. The cadenza demonstrates what a strong player Garrett is and the emotion that she is able to convey through her instrument.
The Linfield Concerto Competition will be performed Friday, March 15th at 8:00pm in Ice Auditorium at Linfield College.
