On Sunday, February 26, Angela Prictoe performed David’s Trombone Concerto No. 4 as the 15th Annual Concerto/Aria winner at the Paramount Theatre in Middletown, NY. The concert by the SUNY Orange Community Orchestra also featured works by Mozart, Bach and Stravinsky. Prictoe was chosen as the soloist after a rigorous audition in January. She currently studies trombone with Martin Tyce of the West Point Concert Band and Richard Regan of the Greater Newburgh Symphony Orchestra and Monroe-Woodbury High School.
Also in attendance at the concert were Monroe-Woodbury alumna Sarah Tusch, who was the first concerto winner in 2003, and M-W High School sophomore Yena Lee, who performed the Quantz Flute Concerto last year.
“Angela demonstrated poise, confidence and superb musicality throughout her performance. She began her studies with me in fourth grade and it is an honor to witness her accomplishments on stage,” said Nicole Regan, M-W district music coordinator.
The SUNY Orange Community Orchestra performs multiple concerts and is composed of students, faculty and community members.
