The Madison Symphony Orchestra featuring trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth and woworks by Sibelius, Haydn, Adams and Strauss. How many classical music stars cultivate an international resume of performances and awards while still in their mid-twenties? Tine Thing Helseth, the fast rising, young trumpet star of the classical music world, will join the Madison Symphony Orchestra Feb. 14-16 in Overture Hall. The Norwegian native is a seasoned soloist with dozens of orchestral engagements under her belt from around the world. This eclectic musician is also a jazz trumpeter and leader of an all-female brass band. Helseth will take the stage twice per concert. First she will perform Joseph Haydn’s Concerto for Trumpet, the first piece to contain truly free melodic writing for the instrument.

Also programmed for the symphony performance are Sibelius’ triumphant Finnish anthem Finlandia, John Adams’ contemporary work Doctor Atomic Symphony, and Richard Straus’ lush, episodic Suite from Der Rosenkavalier.

To this day, his concerto is one of the most performed and cherished in the trumpet repertoire. Alexander Arutiunian had an extensive and renowned involvement with music for brass instruments. His concertos for trumpet, trombone, and horn, as well as brass quintet and trombone quartet are all significant and lasting pieces in the brass literature.

Darlene Koldenhoven – Featuring the Sauk Prairie Youth Choir. What sets Darlene Koldenhoven, this beautiful, tall blond Grammy Award winner and three-time nominee, apart from the rest? I could be her worldwide 1.5 billion viewing audience on PBS as the memorable vocal soloist in “Yanni, Live at the Acropolis”. It could be her work in the war-torn jungles of Sierra Leone, West Africa where she met and coached musicians and singers whom she then took on her tour of the US and Canada. Or that fact that she is one of the few classically trained singers with a five octave range who improvises in classical and non-classical styles with both voice and piano, produces, composes, arranges, programs keyboards, and writes lyrics. Come see for yourself as Ms. Koldenhoven performs with our very own Sauk Prairie Youth Choir and performs a portion of her solo repertoire Saturday December 15 7:30 pm at First Baptist Church 518 N.
