The Lake Murray Symphony Orchestra will hold its annual ‘Concertos & Cupcakes’ concert and reception Sunday afternoon, April 26.
The concert, which is the final of the season for the symphony, includes a performance by the grand prize winner of LMSO’s Young Artist Competition, Christopher Juhn, a sophomore at Spring Valley High School who studies clarinet with Jean Hein.
The Young Artist Competition is an annual event open to 20 high school orchestra and band musicians in school districts in Lexington and Richland counties, said LMSO President Regina Trojanowsky. The young musicians performed solos before a panel of judges in February. The first-, second- and third-place finishers were awarded cash prizes, while the Grand Prize winner, Juhn, received an invitation to perform with the orchestra in their April concert.
Juhn, the 16-year-old son of Joon Suh Juhn and Young Hwa Juhn, plays clarinet with the Spring Valley High School Marching and Symphonic Bands, and has twice been selected for the SC All State Band.
For Sunday’s concert, he will perform Concertino for Clarinet by Carl Maria von Weber. The program also includes Bach’s Fugue in G minor, Lehar’s Luxemburg Waltzes, and Symphony No. 4 in D minor by Robert Schumann.
The concert begins at 3:30 p.m., with a cupcake reception following. The concert will be held at Harbison Theatre at Midlands Technical College, 7300 College Street in Irmo.
The concert is free, but donations are accepted.
