Youth orchestra will feature soloists in Saturday concert

The Orquesta Sinfónica Juvenil presents flute soloist Juan José Bolaños and violin soloist Sofía Dorante in the Teatro Nacional Saturday at 7 p.m.

The orchestra is part of the Instituto Nacional de la Música.

Dmitri Shostakóvitch and Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov are on the program. More than 70 young musicians will participate.

Marvin Araya, director of the orchestra, notes that Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” is a musical description of “A Thousand and One Nights.”

Bolaño, a native Guatemalan, began his studies at age 14 and joined the orchestra here in 2011. Ms. Dorante began with the violin at age 5 in her native Venezuela in Caracas.
