The Glacier Symphony will bring two outstanding young soloists to the stage for a concert for the entire family on Jan. 20-21. The concert will include both classical pieces and popular movie music from Lord of the Rings, Titanic and Star Wars.

Performing the first movement of Edvard Grieg’s popular Piano Concerto in A will be pianist Tanner Jorden, who recently won the Junior Division of the Montana Association of Symphony Orchestra’s Young Artists Competition. The 15-year-old, who hails from Billings, began his musical career at the age of seven when he drew his own staves and composed at the piano.

Young trumpet sensation Natalie Dungey, from Seattle, Washington, will be featured soloist on the Trumpet Concerto in Eb Major by Franz Joseph Haydn, a tuneful classical era masterpiece. The 19-year-old currently attends UCLA on a full music scholarship.

Maestro John Zoltek will briefly interview the soloists from the stage so they can share their own thoughts on what inspires and motivates them to strive for musical excellence.

The second half of the concert will be devoted to movie music favorites including John Williams’ The Force Awakens, from Star Wars, the romantic theme music from Titanic, composed by James Horner — celebrating the 20th anniversary of this popular film, and music from two Lord of the Rings movies by Howard Shore.

“This concert will be a fantastic opportunity to experience young artists playing great classical masterpieces and also enjoy movie scores at the same time! It will be a fun combination of classical and movie music,” says Zoltek.

Performances will be held in Whitefish on Saturday, Jan. 20, 7:30 pm at the Whitefish Performing Arts Center and on Sunday, Jan. 21, 3 p.m. at the Flathead High Performance Hall in Kalispell. Tickets are available in a range of prices and seating tiers. Youth through grade 12 are admitted free to this Masterworks Series concert. Tickets can be purchased online at www.glaciersymphony.organd at the Glacier Symphony Box Office by calling 406-407-7000, located at 69 N. Main St. Kalispell.
