Michelle Younger, of the Albemarle Symphony Orchestra, steals the show as the guitar soloist for Antonio Vivaldi’s Concerto for Lute and Strings. The 40-50 member Albemarle Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Philip Clark, celebrated the holiday season with the Crozet and Albemarle community at Crozet Baptist Church on December 10. Also on the program were selections from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Arcangelo Corelli’s lovely Christmas concerto, and a selection of traditional carols. The next performance of the Albemarle Symphony Orchestra will be March 16 at Grisham Hall Auditorium of St. Anne’s-Belfield School, featuring Humberto Sales performing the Rodrigo Guitar Concerto.
