The Cal Poly Symphony will present its annual Soloist Showcase through a virtual presentation at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 12. The symphony held auditions in November for student soloists from a variety of majors for the opportunity to be featured in the showcase. The winners were computer engineering major Kiran Manikonda on clarinet and double civil engineering and music major Grant Smith on piano. Manikonda will play Gioachino Rossini’s “Introduction, Theme and Variations,” and Smith will perform the first movement from Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Minor. The program will also include two movements from Gordon Jacob’s “Old Wine in New Bottles,” performed by the winds and brass of the orchestra, and Edvard Grieg’s “Two Elegiac Melodies,” performed by the strings. There will be a live Q&A session immediately following the recorded performance with Music Professor and conductor David Arrivée, the soloists and other students. Tickets are sold at the Performing Arts Center, 805-756-4849. For more information, visit the Music Department calendar website.
