The winners of three divisional School of Music concerto competitions— Kai-En Cheng, violin, Ella Kalinichenko, piano, and Rachel Reyes, flute—perform their winning concerto excerpts with the UW Symphony on April 26.

In addition, the orchestra’s April 26 program includes the work of another outstanding student winner: UW composition student Yonatan Ron, a master's student who studies with Huck Hodge and Yigit Kolat, who won the UW’s recent composition competition with his piece "What Stood Still Goes Down Hill."

Cheng, a senior majoring in Economics who studies with Ron Patterson, will perform movements from The Butterfly Lovers’ Violin Concerto, by Chen Gang and He Zhanhao.

Reyes, a DMA student of Donna Shin, performs Flute Concerto, op. 30a by Hisatada Otaka.

Kalinichenko, a student of Cristina Valdés, performs the first movement of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3, in C minor, Op. 37.
