The evening opens with one of our most popular events – Future Stars. Students in the Southern Miss School of Music annually compete in the William T. Gower Competition. The winners appear as soloists with the orchestra in one of our most popular evenings of music. This year, winners will be selected from the wind, brass and percussion divisions.
Conductor Gregory Fuller and the Hattiesburg Choral Union takes the stage on the second half to sing the U.S. premiere of Kreek’s Notebook, a work for choir and strings based on Estonian spiritual folk tunes. It presents a new, modern look at folk hymns and is an homage to Estonian composer Cyrillus Kreek.
A magical evening of outstanding student soloists, gifted singers, wonderful music and the incomparable Symphony Orchestra makes a spectacular finale to the entire season.
