Honors Students Attend Fort Worth Symphony

Southwestern Adventist University honors students attended the opening weekend performance of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and met with Miguel Harth-Bedoya, music director of the FWSO.

Sixty honors students and their guests, accompanied by honors and music faculty members and administrators, went to the Sunday, Sept. 12, matinee performance. The concert featured music by Beethoven, Prokofiev, and Peter Boyer, the symphony’s composer-in-residence.

Students were also able to meet Harth-Bedoya , the conductor of that day’s performance, for a short interview session after the concert. Harth-Bedoya answered a number of questions on rehearsals, performance problems, the music profession, and orchestral dynamics.

Di Wu, a Cliburn-medal competition finalist, was the soloist for the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor.” The orchestra performed selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet suites, music which Prokofiev composed for the ballet based on Shakespeare’s play.

After the concert, the students had dinner at Simply Fondue, hosted by Eric and Loretta Anderson.
