BOONE—Winners of the Hayes School of Music’s concerto-aria competition will perform with the Appalachian State University Symphony Orchestra Sunday, Feb. 15.

Marvel is a graduate student and performance major in the music school. Lease is a sophomore music industries studies major. Li is a junior music education major.
The annual concerto-aria competition identifies the most advanced performers in the Hayes School of Music and gives them the opportunity to gain experience as featured soloists. A panel of judges selects up to three winners each fall who perform with the Appalachian Symphony Orchestra in the spring.
Marvel will perform two movements from Emmanuel Chabrier’s “Suite Pastorale” and three movements from Johann Baptist Georg Neruda’s “Concerto for Trumpet in E-flat Major.”
Lease will perform “Concertino for Clarinet in E-flat Major, Op. 26” by Carl Maria von Weber.” Li will perform Igor Stravinsky’s “Suite No. 1 for Small Orchestra” and “Suite No. 2 for Small Orchestra.”
