It will also include a performance by pianist Nathan Zhao, the winner of the CSO 2016-2017 Rising Star competition.

Nathan, at 10 years old, is the youngest Rising Star since the inception of this program. He will perform the 3rd movement of the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 21. The popular Cascade Percussion Ensemble will conclude the program.
