Meridian Prall, mezzo-soprano (SMTD Concerto Competition Winner)
Pre-concert lecture at 7:15 PM in the lower lobby.
The University Philharmonia Orchestra and graduate concerto competition winner Meridian Prall perform Joseph Marx’s vocal masterpiece, the sublime song cycle Verklärtes Jahr (Transfigured Year). The second part of the concert is a journey through Finnish landscape and legend. It begins with Rautavaara’s Cantus Arcticus, a “concerto” featuring the calls and songs of Finnish birds, and continues with Sibelius’s tone poem Pohjola’s Daughter, a tale of magic, mystery and adventure.
