Sophomore to Perform Solo with CSO

Sophomore Andrew Yang was recently selected to play a solo during an annual side-by-side performance with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the CSYO Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, a prestigious tradition. Yang, along with four other student musicians, including freshman Kathryn Guo, across the region, auditioned at Music Hall on Nov. 10 for the position. He will play the famous solo, Franz Waxman’s “Carmen Fantasie,” during an April 2019 performance at Music Hall. “This is a really big deal,” said instrumental music teacher John Rising, adding that Yang is a stellar, hard-working student musician. “This side-by-side concert gives Andrew an extremely amazing opportunity to solo with two fantastic orchestras!”
