Winners of the annual Berkshire Symphony Student Soloist Competition were announced late on the evening of February 12, 2013 following the deliberation of the judges presiding over a competition involving 17 Williams College music students. In a three hour program open to the public, listeners were treated to some of the best that Williams has to offer.

Casy McLellan ’14, percussion; Patrica Ho ’16, cello; Elaina Pullano ’15, mezzo soprano; and Robert Yang, ’15, cello have been chosen to appear with the Berkshire Symphony in the third and final regular season concert on Friday,April 19, in Chapin Hall, a concert which showcases the remarkable talents of Williams students.

The competition is open to Williams College students who have completed required instrumental or vocal studies and are enrolled in qualifying courses. The soloists present one movement for soloist and orchestra from a concerto, a single-movement work, a concert or operatic aria, or song cycle.

We congratulate the winners and thank everyone who participated in the competition.
