The 46th annual President’s Concert honors the current University of Arizona president; Dr. Robert C. Robbin, who was in attendance on Friday, February 1, 2019. The concert's featured student soloists were flutist Ivo Shin, performing the first movement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 2 in D Major, soprano Erika Burkhart performing the “Poison Aria” from Roméo et Juliette by Charles Gounod, pianist Minjun Dong performing the first movement of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat Minor, and cellist Diana Yusupov performing Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Cello Concerto in C Major.

The students were selected from each area of the Fred Fox School of Music – strings, voice, wind and percussion, and keyboard. They represent the depth of talent at the school, shining in this performance with the Arizona Symphony Orchestra. Their performances were conducted by doctoral student Sean Bresseman and faculty guest conductor Yudai Ueda. The program also included Mozart’s Overture to “Die Zauberflöte” and “The Cowboys Overture” by John Williams, under the baton of Dr. Thomas Cockrell.
