UofSC Symphony Orchestra – Trailblazers: Tina Milhorn Stallard, Soprano
The University of South Carolina Symphony Orchestra presents its second Trailblazers concert, featuring Tina Milhorn Stallard, soprano, at the Koger Center for the Arts. Beethoven’s fourth symphony is a lighthearted masterpiece full of mischievous twists and turns. Both it and Rossini’s famous comedic overture from The Barber of Seville are wild rides for audience and orchestra alike. Soprano Tina Stallard is featured in George Walker’s Lilacs for soprano and orchestra, the first piece by an African American to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. Composed in 1995, the piece is based on Walt Whitman’s elegy for Abraham Lincoln, “When Lilacs Last in the Doorward Bloom’d.”
