D.C. Everest Student Musician to Perform with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

D.C. Everest (DCE) Senior High band student, David Pickar, was selected as a Finalist for the Forte’s Young Artist Auditions with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra (MSO). Held on February 18, Pickar auditioned with Ney Rosauro’s Concerto for Marimba Movements 1 and 4. These auditions were open to all Wisconsin high school string, woodwind, brass and percussion musicians.

Pickar was named as one of the 17 semi-finalists of the event from a field of 47 musicians. He has been invited to perform side-by-side with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra at the Audrey G. Baird Stars of Tomorrow concert on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center in Waukesha.

Students will perform Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36 with the full orchestra. Music will be sent to students to prepare on their own in advance. Following the concert there will be a reception in the lounge at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center honoring the young performers.

The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Music Director Edo de Waart, is among the finest orchestras in the nation. Since its inception in 1959, the MSO has found innovative ways to give music a home in the region, develop music appreciation and talent among area youth, and raise the national reputation of Milwaukee. The orchestra’s nationally syndicated radio broadcast series, the longest consecutive-running series of any U.S. orchestra, is heard annually by 3.8 million listeners on 183 subscriber stations in 38 of the top 100 markets.
