WDAV Classical Public Radio’s third annual Young Chamber Musicians competition drew entries from across the country and Europe, and the four finalists represented some of the nation’s finest music programs. The Junior Division featured a “battle of the coasts,” with ensembles from New York City and Los Angeles competing.  In the Senior Division a group from The Cleveland Institute of Music went up against one from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. The concert was presented in the Duke Family Performance Hall on the Davidson College campus and broadcast live, with prizes awarded not only by the panel of judges but also an “Audience Choice” award determined by text voting.

Schubert & Mozart is the title the Winston-Salem Symphony bestowed on the concert we feature this week, but it must be noted that another excellent composer contributes to the music—Benjamin Britten. Guest conductor Mark Stringer  leads the orchestra in Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony No. 8, Britten’s Concerto for Violin & Viola, and Mozart’s final symphony—No. 41 in C, “Jupiter.” It’s a program of variety and exciting performances, so be with us for this edition of Carolina Live.
