Dorothy Jacoby Student Soloist Competition Set for Thursday

UW’s finest student musicians will perform in the Dorothy Jacoby Student Soloist competition Thursday at the University of Wyoming Fine Arts concert hall. One of the six finalists will be named as the winner and receive a significant cash award. A panel of judges comprised of music faculty members from other universities will choose the winner of the Jacoby prize.

The Dorothy Jacoby Student Soloist competition is an opportunity for UW student musicians to display their extraordinary musical talent by performing their concerti with the UW Symphony Orchestra (UWSO) during the concert.

This year’s finalists are:

  • Tyler Cessor, saxophonist from Cheyenne, will play “Scaramouche” by the French composer Darius Milhaud.
  • Jun Fuo, pianist from Shenyang City, China, will perform the opening movement of the “Rachmininoff second piano concerto”.
  • Xiaoqian Gou, pianist from Xi’an, China, will play the last movement of “Mendelssohn’s First Piano Concerto”.
  • Xuan Li, flutist from Changsha, China, will perform the “Demersseman Sixth Solo de Concert”.
  • Stephanie Rickard, playing the french horn, from Laramie, will play the last two movements of the “Horn Concerto” by Reinhold Gliere.
  • Nicklas Waroff, alto saxophonist from Rogue River, Ore., will perform the “Saxophone Concerto” by Alexander Glazunov.

While the judges are making their decision, Laramie resident and UW senior Dan Galbreath will conduct the UWSO in Borodin’s “In the Steppes of Central Asia”. UWSO Music Director Michael Griffith will conduct the remainder of the concert which will feature music by Mendelssohn, Rachmaninoff, Milhaud, Gliere, and more.

The concert will begin at 7:30 on February 10. Tickets cost $10 for general admission, $7 for senior citizens and $6 for students.  They can be purchased in the Fine Arts or Wyoming Union box offices, by calling (307)766-6666 or visiting
