La Jolla Music Society presents the Discovery Series Prelude featuring an advanced SDYS small ensemble or soloist prior to the featured Discovery Series performer.

SDYS musician Erica Wang will perform at 2pm and artists Kian Soltani, cello and Julio Elizalde, piano will perform at 3pm.

About the 2pm Prelude recital

Erica Wang began playing the flute at age nine, when she was selected as a flutist in her school’s music program. She plays in Symphony Orchestra and Wind Orchestra in SDYS’ Ovation program, and was a finalist for the 2019 Concerto Competition. She has been the principal flutist of multiple school and honor bands and is currently a 9th grader at Torrey Pines High School. Erica will be performing the following works in her Prelude recital, accompanied by Katherine Dvoskin on piano:

  • GOUNOD (1818–1893) Concertino for Flute and Piano (1902)
  • PROKOFIEV (1891-1953) Moderato from Sonata for Flute and Piano Op. 94, I (1943)
  • HOOVER (1937-2018) Winter Spirits for Solo Flute (1997)
  • IBERT (1770–1827) Allegro from Concerto for Flute (1932-33)

Musical Preludes are held on stage and open to ticket buyers before all Discovery Series concerts and select SummerFest performances. Musical Preludes give young musicians the platform to develop their musicianship and technique in front of a live audience, which in turn bolsters the confidence needed for auditions, competitions and future performances.
