SSO show will star rising trumpeter

Mary Elizabeth Bowden will highlight next weekend’s program.


The Springfield Symphony Orchestra’s 70th season has featured guest musicians of various talents. March brings out the brass.

Trumpet soloist Mary Elizabeth Bowden will highlight the program Classics! at 8 p.m. next Saturday, March 22, at the Clark State Performing Arts Center’s Kuss Auditorium.

Bowden is a rising young soloist with several accomplishments already — including first place in the 2012 International Women’s Brass Conference Competition. She has performed throughout the U.S. and internationally, and has a Master of Music degree from the Yale School of Music.

She’ll perform concerti works from Joseph Haydn and Giuseppe Tartini.

Symphony works will include J.S. Bach’s “Orchestral Suite No. 1” and Haydn’s “Symphony No. 104.” Symphony Music Director Peter Stafford Wilson said he’s excited to perform Haydn’s music, something he hasn’t done yet in Springfield.

“There is no better symphony than Haydn ‘Symphony No. 104,’ it’s one of the mainstays of symphonic repertoire,” said Wilson. “Were tapping into two things our audience has shown great appreciation for: outside-the-box thinking with guest artists and the performance of great baroque classics.”

The program will include several other highlights including the presentation of the Springfield Symphony’s Music Educator of the Year Award. Amy Whitehill, a 22-year youth orchestra director for Fairborn City Schools, is this year’s recipient.

The evening will begin at 7:15 p.m. with the Opening Notes pre-concert talk in the Turner Studio, presented by Trudy Faber of Wittenberg University.

The Wright State University Trumpet Ensemble will do the Performance Prelude, also at 7:15 p.m. in the Kuss lobby.

A limited number of seats are available the week of the concert for $15 for adults and $10 for students.
