As Winner of the BSO’s 2014 Young Artist Concerto Competition

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra is pleased to announce the 2014 winner of the BSO’s 2014 Young Artist Concerto Competition – Christopher Son Richardson, piano, age 15 from Lake Forest Park, who performed Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor, op. 54, 1st movement. Jennifer Chong, piano, was awarded second place for her performance of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A minor, op. 16, and Andrew Liu, piano, was awarded third place for his performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, op. 18, 1st movement.

The BSO’s winter concert - “The Pines of Rome” - will take listeners from the quiet sounds of Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony performed by the BSO, Richardson, and Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra to “Bainbridge By:” a world premiere commissioned for the BSO by Erich Stem, to one of Respighi’s most epic tone poems written about his beloved Rome.
