Event Details

The annual family concert will feature the winner of the annual high school soloist competition Kevin Vandal. Kevin is a home-educated senior from rural Rolette County. Kevin first received piano instruction from his dad and began formal lessons at age 8. Since 2017 he has been studying with MSO principal pianist, Dr. Dianna Anderson. Kevin will perform the first movement from Concerto No. 2 in G minor by Saint-Saëns with the reduced orchestra.

 “Kevin has worked very hard for several years with the goal of performing with the Minot Symphony Orchestra. I am so pleased that his efforts are paying off, and especially proud of the musical growth he has shown in the process,” said Dianna Anderson, Assistant Professor, Piano at Music at Minot State University.

“Simple is Better” will also include Capriol Suite for String Orchestra by Peter Warlock, Opus Number Zoo by Luciano Berio (pre-recorded), Brass Quintet by Efraín Amaya, and Simple Symphony by Benjamin Britten. This family friendly program highlights the different families of instruments in the symphony. Although there will be a reduced number of musicians on stage to adhere to social distancing guidelines, the program is well rounded and will feature pieces for strings only, a brass ensemble, the SubZero Winds woodwind quintet, and a reduced number of woodwinds, brass, and timpani with strings for the Saint-Saëns piece.

A limited number of in-person tickets are available and must be purchased in advance by calling 701-858-4228. The performances will be held at MSU Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on Thursday February 4 at 7:30pm and Saturday February 6 at 3pm. Doors will open 30 min. prior to the performance.
