The Carson City Symphony, directed by David Bugli, will present a concert, "Russian Treasures," at 4 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Carson City Community Center.
The concert features guest violinist Carla Trynchuk in a performance of Alexander Glazunov's Violin Concerto. The program, suitable for people of all ages, also includes Russian March by Strauss, In the Steppes of Central Asia by Borodin, and Capriccio Italien by Tchaikovsky.
Pre-concert entertainment by Markleeville artist Russel Ketenjian begins at 3 p.m. in the lobby.
Ketenjian sings and plays original exotic melodies on the ancient oud, a lute-like instrument that evolved to the modern guitar. Some of his artwork also will be on display in the lobby.
A Meet-the-Soloist concert preview begins at 3:15 p.m. in the Sierra Room. Bugli and Trynchuk will discuss the music and answer questions from the audience.
Canadian violinist Trynchuk has performed as soloist with orchestras and in recitals throughout North America and in Europe, Asia and Australia. A graduate of the Juilliard School of Music in New York, she is professor of music and director of the string program at Andrews University in Michigan. While in Carson City, she will visit orchestra classes at Carson City schools.
