Music competition winners play with the Loyola Symphony

April 8, 2011

Students from the College of Music and Fine Arts will be featured with the Loyola Symphony Orchestra at its annual concert on April 10 featuring the winners of Loyola's Concerto, Aria and Composition Competition. Held the previous fall, the competition recognizes Loyola University New Orleans’ finest musicians.

“The preparation and quality of performance by all finalists were excellent,” said Jean Montès, D.M.A., director of Loyola orchestras. “We should all take pride in the level of music making that is taking place here at Loyola.”

The concert takes place Sunday, April 10 at 3 p.m. in Roussel Hall, located in Loyola’s Communications/Music Complex. Admission is free and open to the public.

This year’s performers are Michael Bennett, piano performance sophomore from Lake Charles, La., performing Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major; and Sue Celestin, violin performance senior from Port-au-Prince, Haiti, performing Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, Op. 61 in D major.

Also featured at the performance will be an original composition, “Side Angle,” by Victor Gould, a student of the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance and a master’s degree candidate of the College of Music and Fine Arts.
