Concert tonight features two local soloists

The Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional will present two of its own as soloists tonight and Sunday morning along with Mozart and Mendelssohn.

This is the eighth concert of the season, and the performances will be under the baton of director Carl St. Clair.

Eva Trigueros, formerly of El Salvador, and Winnie Camila Berg, formerly of Cuba, are being featured as solo performers. They will collaborate with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Viola and Orchestra in E-flat major.”

Ms. Trigueros is a violinist, and Ms. Berg plays the viola. The work contains a movement for each. Both performers have been members of the orchestra for about three years, according to an announcement.

The orchestra also will present Felix Mendelssohn’s “Symphony No. 4 in A major, Op. 90,” the so called “Italian Symphony,” which debuted in London in 1833.

Also on the program is Mozart’s overture to “The Abduction from the Seraglio.”

The performance tonight is at 8 p.m. in the Teatro Nacional with a pre-concert discussion in the foyer at 7 p.m. The Sunday repeat performance is at 10:30 a.m. Tickets range from 4,000 to 18,000 colons with 50 percent discounts for seniors and students.
