Every year, the ISU Symphony showcases some of the best student musicians on campus during its annual Concert of Soloists. Students compete in a multi-staged competition to have the opportunity to solo with the ISU Symphony. This year's winners are Maia Hove on the violin and Louis Dupuis on the alto-saxophone. The concert also features the world premiere of a brand new piece of music commissioned for the ISU Symphony and composed as an homage to the genre of Japanese Anime. Michael-Thomas Foumai, the composer of the new work, will be in residence at Iowa State the week of the concert and will work with the orchestra and our music students.
