On Sunday, April 24, 2022, the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association’s Concerto Competition prizewinners will perform with the Amadeus Orchestra under the direction of A. Scott Wood at Saint Luke Catholic Church in McLean. The students were chosen from three concerto competition events: NVMTA’s Robert Spencer Piano Concerto Competition, the NVMTA Woodwind Concerto Competition, and the NVMTA String Concerto Competition.

Over 120 students competed in these three competitions in 2022. Six students will perform with the Amadeus Orchestra including two students from 2020 who were chosen but were unable to perform when the event was canceled due to covid-19. This year’s performers include Jude Giddons (piano), Runa Matsushita (violin), Mikhail Mints (clarinet), Christopher Tate (cello), Kevin Wu (clarinet), and Angela J. Zhang (piano). 

The concertos for this program were composed by Beethoven, Copland, Rachmaninoff, Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky, and Von Weber. 

Congratulations to these students, their teachers, and their families! Thank you to Artistic Director Scott Wood and the Amadeus Orchestra and NVMTA for making this wonderful experience possible. Donations are gratefully accepted to make this a continuing event for these talented students and can be made at nvmta.org. Please indicate that it is for opportunities with the Amadeus Orchestra.
