Each summer, Kirk Trevor and the Missouri Symphony Society take classical music to a range of venues around Columbia and Mid-Missouri. From Stephens Lake Park to Douglass Park to Shelter Gardens, classical music fans get to absorb symphonic and chamber works in a range of diverse settings. This Thursday, the Missouri Symphony Orchestra returns to the Missouri Theatre stage to play film music.
Thirteen year old concert pianist Umi Garrett joins the Missouri Symphony Orchestra under Maestro Kirk Trevor for a Hot Summer Nights' performance this Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at Columbia's Missouri Theatre.
What were you doing when you were thirteen? Umi Garrett is thirteen and she's possibly accomplished more than you and I put together had by that age. And then some. Garrett's been playing professionally since age eight. You can hear her perform this Saturday night when she joins the Missouri Symphony Orchestra at the Missouri Theatre for a concert the Missouri Symphony Society bills as Umi Returns.
Listen here to KBIA's Trevor Harris in a recent interview with pianist Umi Garrett. Garrett makes her second Columbia appearance this Saturday as part of the Missouri Symphony Society's 2014 Hot Summer Nights series.
