Violinist Jayna Leach Wins the 2017 Windham Orchestra Concerto Competition

We're pleased to announce that Jayna Leach, a 15-year-old violinist from Keene, New Hampshire, is the winner of this year's Windham Orchestra Concerto Competition. She played Sibelius Violin Concerto in the audition on February 5th, and will join the orchestra for the first movement of that work in our March concerts:

Friday, March 24, 2017, 7:30pm
The Putney School, Putney, VT

Sunday, March 26, 2017, 3pm
Latchis Theatre, Brattleboro, VT

Jayna was a winner in an extraordinary field of players. She is already a musician of wide accomplishment, and her performances will be unmissable.

The rest of the Windham Orchestra program is devoted to Beethoven: the warm and light-hearted Symphony No. 4, and the heavens-storming Symphony No. 3, Eroica. Each piece offers a perspective on living with beauty and transcendence in turbulent times. This music is for us, now.
