April 21. 2011 - Shorter University student Diane Turner will be a featured performer during the April 30 concert of the Rome Symphony Orchestra. Turner won the right to perform at the concert when she won the collegiate division at the Rome Symphony Orchestra’s inaugural concerto competition. She performed the first movement of Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor.
Joining Turner as a featured performer will be Model High School student Timothy Reynolds, who won the high school division for his performance of the first movement of Wienlawski’s Violin Concerto in D minor.
Turner, a native of McDonough, is a freshman piano performance/piano pedagogy major at Shorter University. Dr. Jerico Vasquez, assistant professor of music (piano) at Shorter and Turner’s instructor said, "Diane is one of our finest young pianists. Even though she is only a freshmen, she is already showing much promise and maturity in playing one of Mozart's most challenging works."
A total of 13 entrants competed in the Rome Symphony Orchestra’s concerto competition. Berry College and Shorter University were represented in the collegiate division, Armuchee High School, Darlington School, Model High School and Rome High School made up the high school competitors.
