Live, Gifted and Black'

March 13, 1997|By Stephen Wigler

In 1994 when she was only 17 years old, violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama became one of the youngest winners in the history of the Young Concert Artists International Auditions. While the teen-age Ngwenyama is still a student at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, she's already enjoying an international career.

This brilliant young musician joins conductor Daniel Hege and the Baltimore Symphony next week for a performance of Bela Bartok's Viola Concerto in the orchestra's sixth annual celebration of African-American talent, "Live, Gifted and Black."

Ngwenyama will perform Tuesday at 7: 30 p.m. in Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., in a program that also will include Adolphus Hailstork's "Celebration" and William Grant Still's Symphony No. 2. Tickets are free but must be obtained at the ticket office. The limit is four per person. Call (410) 783-8000.
