The Seven Hills Symphony Young Artist Concert, featuring the winner of the 2018 Concerto Competition, Talia Kee, will be held Friday, March 9, at 7:30 p.m. at UMass Medical School.
The Seven Hills Symphony is dedicated to providing performance opportunities to amateur, student and professional musicians throughout Central Massachusetts and Northeastern Connecticut; to providing the residents of those communities with access to high quality, low cost symphonic music; and to promote music appreciation and build community through their outreach programs.
Performing a varied repertoire under the leadership of professional conductors, the orchestra strives to create a noncompetitive, nonthreatening musical environment that is welcoming to musicians with a wide range of skill levels.
Seven Hills Symphony was founded in 2005 by cellist Joanna Chaurette, MD, PhD, while she was a student at UMMS. Dr. Chaurette’s husband, Scott, a professional conductor, previously served as the symphony’s music director. They turned its leadership over to musician and conductor Juli Sancoucy following Chaurette’s graduation and entry into medical residency last year.
The Seven Hills Symphony concert on Friday, March 9, begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Lazare Research Building at UMass Medical School. Admission is free and open to the public, with donations gladly accepted to help fund educational opportunities and future performances.
