Winners of the Butler School of Music String Concerto Competition — four musicians who study at UT Austin — will perform with the Austin Civic Orchestra at the sixth annual Texas Rising Stars concert on 3/25 at 7:30 p.m. in Bates Recital Hall.

The free concert features violinist Patrice Calixte, guitarist Henry Johnston, violinist Nicolás Medina Gutiérrez and cellist Seulki Lee. In addition to accompanying the four soloists on their concertos, the orchestra will perform Jennifer Higdon’s “blue cathedral” and the chamber version of Aaron Copland’s “Appalachian Spring,” both led by Music Director Lois Ferrari.

Ferrari and Lewis will provide insight into the music at a pre-concert talk from 6:45-7:15 p.m. in room MRH
