Two outstanding musicians -- one a graduate student and the other an undergraduate -- will be featured in the April 21-22 performances by the Princeton University Orchestra.
The program of audience favorites from the French, German and Russian traditions will begin at 8 each evening in Richardson Auditorium, Alexander Hall. The orchestra is under the direction of Michael Pratt.
The concert will open with Roman Carnival Overture by Hector Berlioz featuring Ruth Ochs as conductor in her University Orchestra debut. Ochs is assistant conductor of the orchestra and a third-year student in the Ph.D. program in musicology.
The Scottish Fantasy for Violin and Orchestra by Max Bruch will feature junior John Byoung Jin Kang as violin soloist. He is the co-winner of the orchestra's 2005 Concerto Competition.
The performances, designated as the Stuart B. Mindlin Memorial Concerts, also will include Serge Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2.
