Bay of Plenty Symphonia presents the finals concert of this year’s Rising Stars Competitions. Six talented young musicians from Bay of Plenty schools will perform a movement from their chosen concerto, accompanied by the orchestra. The works to be played are mostly classics of the repertoire and will be well known to music lovers. The finalists are:

- Phoebe Cho (Bethlehem College): Beethoven - Piano Concerto No.3
- Jessie Colbert (John Paul College, Rotorua): Dittersdorf - 2nd Concerto for Double Bass
- Soomin Kim (Tauranga Girls’ College): Grieg - Piano Concerto.
- Esther Lee (Otumoetai Intermediate School): Haydn - Cello Concerto No.1
- Janet Reid (Bethlehem College): Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto
- Andrew Robinson (Tauranga Boys’ College): Weber - Clarinet Concerto No. 1.

Their performances will be judged by a panel of prestigious judges headed by Peter Walls ONZM. While the panel deliberates, 14 year old violinist Anna Lee, who was the winning Rising Star in 2013, will perform Wieniawski’s Légende with the Symphonia.

For the first time in this biennial competition, Bay of Plenty Symphonia has included a Composition category. The concert will feature a performance by the orchestra of the winning piece, Soomin Kim’s Warmth of Passion.

Winners will be announced and prizes will be presented by His Worship the Mayor of Tauranga, Stuart Crosby.
