Anchorage Civic Orchestra Concert Friday Will Feature Two Outstanding High School Soloists

Each spring, at the Anchorage Civic Orchestra's Family Concert, we feature the winner of our December Concerto Competition.  This year we couldn't decide which of two extremely talented Anchorage high school students was the winner, so we will feature them both, as co-winners.

Dane Breitung, a junior, will perform Claude T. Smith's Fantasia for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra.  Here is a performance of the original version for alto saxophone and wind ensemble:

Keeon Guzman, a senior, will perform the Finale from Edward Elgar's Cello Concerto:

I feel privileged to be leading the accompaniment of these two hard-working, vivacious young performers.
