Rising Stars Concert

The idea behind the Rising Stars Concert is to bring to Laredo young prodigies from acorss the country to play for Elementary School children with the intent of inspiring our community's youth to aspire to reach such great musical heights.

Over the course of ten years the Laredo Phil has brought in such wonders as pianist Marc Yu at age 7 who has gone on to perform alongside Lang Lang in some of the most esteemed concert halls across the country, and virtuoso violinist Nancy Zhou who has been winner at many prestigious competitions around the world.

These young performers engage our local youth in a dialog about the music they are playing, about what being a musician is like, and what inspires them to be musicians. To date, over 10,000 students from both of Laredo's school districts have attended these concerts - and for many of them it was the first time ever attending a live concert of "Classical" music.

The 10th Annual Rising Stars Concerts will take place on Friday February 1, 2013 at the Recital Hall, Texas A&M International Univeristy.
