From a press release: 

The Manassas Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Music Director James Villani, will conclude its 25th Anniversary Season with Russian Silver on May 12, 2018 at 7:30 pm at the Hylton Performing Arts Center. The highlight of the concert will be the performance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s magical Scheherazade, where the orchestra will be augmented with 21 advanced musicians from seven area high schools and one middle school, representing 3 different school districts, Prince William County, Manassas City, and Fairfax County Schools. The MSO performed this amazing composition in 2007.

Internationally-acclaimed Steinway Artist Agnes Wan is the concert’s highlighted soloist, playing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. A first prize winner at the Paris Grand Prize Virtuoso Music Competition and the Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition, Agnes Wan has also won the Loyola Concerto/Aria Competition, University of Iowa All-University Concerto/Aria Competition, and the University of Iowa Chamber Music Competition. Her performance should not be missed. The program also includes Dmitri Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, Op. 96.
