The Berkshire Symphony Student Soloist Gala concert features performances by winners of the 2019 Berkshire Symphony Soloist Competition. At the competition in February judges choose outstanding Williams College student musicians to perform. The 75-member orchestra also presents Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances. There is a pre-concert talk with conductor Ronald Feldman and student soloists before the concert at 7:15 p.m. in Brooks-Rogers Recital Hall, adjacent to the main venue. Both of these events are free and open to the public.
