The Young Artists Showcase is back in Philadelphia for a fourth week this summer for a performance by the Temple University Symphony Orchestra at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. Violinist Kristin Lee, who was first on the Young Artists Showcase 10 years ago as recipient of a Salon de Virtuosi Scholarship Grant, joins the orchestra as soloist in the Tchaikovsky concerto.

And while the Showcase is in Philadelphia, we’ll hear flutist Julietta Curenton, another remarkable young musician from the roster of Astral Artists. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Curenton's "tone glows more than it sparkles, and it draws in one’s ear with sounds and ideas that simply cannot be resisted." She performs the Saverio Mercadante Flute Concerto in E minor, also with the Temple University Orchestra under artistic director Luis Biava.

Program details:

Saverio Mercadante: Flute Concerto in E Minor (second and third movements)
