Maria Ioudenitch

✴ Return to Valdosta - The VSO performed Jonathan Bailey Holland’s Motor City Dance Mix in 2010.

✴ All in the family - Maria Ioudenitch, who comes from musical royalty (her father won the Van Cliburn Piano Competition), has already soloed with the Utah Symphony, Kansas City Symphony, and Mariinsky Symphony Orchestra.

✴ Musical yardstick - Mendelssohn’s final major orchestral work became a standard for every aspiring professional violinist and a favorite of audiences.

✴ Struggle - Schumann’s sweeping Second Symphony is a soaring, victorious statement from a composer who fought with depression.

"Trumpets and drums have been sounding in my mind for quite a while now; I have no idea what will come of it... In the finale, I first began to feel like myself again." — Robert Schumann, during the composition of his 2nd Symphony
