The University of Wyoming Symphony Orchestra (UWSO) and Symphony Association will host the annual Concertmaster Fund recital at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 14 in the Recital Hall of the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts.

Tickets are $40 for the in-person event and $20 to view the concert online. To purchase tickets, visit the Performing Arts Box Office or the Wyoming Union Information Office, call (307) 766-6666, or go online to www.uwyo.edu/finearts. For online tickets, attendees will be given access website to view the performance.

The concert was originally scheduled for Thursday, February 3, but was postponed due to a date change from a UW Cowboys basketball game, which was at the same time. Tickets for the original performance will be honored on the new date. However, symphonic customers who want a refund can contact the performing arts box office.

UWSO co-concertmasters Saúl Fuego Garcia and Brittany Kubiak will be accompanied by pianist Nathália Kato. The program includes music by Bach, Chen Yi, Debussy, de Falla, Li Huanzhi and Ponce/Heifetz. It ends with duets by Bartók.

The recital is a fundraising event for the Charles Moore, MD, Concertmaster Fellowship, which supports the UWSO Concertmaster position.

“This is a critical funding need for the orchestra, and we sincerely hope you will attend,” said UWSO Music Director Michael Griffith.

In-person attendees will receive a special gift from the Symphony Association for their support of the organization.
