At 10:30 am on Saturday, Nov 21, the Kalamazoo-based Stulberg International String Competition will conclude a series of three online concerts this month. This week, the featured artist is violinist Charlotte Marckx, the 2018 gold medalist.


Tchaikovsky, a genius at writing from the heart, was also a master at controlling the sounds of the orchestra, Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra music director Julian Kuerti's says of the beloved composer, whose Violin Concerto in D and Symphony No. 5 are featured on the next KSO program. The 2018 Stulberg Competition gold medalist Charlotte Marckx is excited to play her favorite concert with the orchestra. This performance was part of the prize she won at the competition last May. 

In a conversation with Cara Lieurance, the music director and the soloist share stories about past performances and experiences, and look forward to Afterwords, the post-concert mixer with musicians and audience together. The concert begins at 8 pm in Miller Auditorium on Saturday, Jan 26.
