Featuring Special Guest Artist Ruth Conry and Guest Conductor David Corrillo
Ruth Conry, Violin
The orchestra is delighted to welcome Ruth Conry to Golden Valley's Concert in the Park music series. Ruth will make her first appearance with the Golden Valley Orchestra playing the Wieniawski Violin Concerto No. 2 in D minor.
As a young 17-year-old violinist from Edina, Ruth recently won an award from the Minnesota Orchestra’s Young People’s Symphony Concert Association. Ruth received the award during the association’s 65th annual Concerto Competition on Feb. 22 at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. In addition to cash prizes, Ms. Conry has also been invited to perform at several orchestral events throughout the year.
Conry, a Duluth native and student of Sally O'Reilly, is currently a Junior at Edina High School and concert master with the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony.
David Carrillo, Guest Conductor
Born and raised in Costa Rica, Jose David Carrillo Silliezar comes from a musical family. Starting on the violin at the age of four under his mother's instruction, he was also shaped early as a conductor by his father, a choral conductor himself.
While finishing schooling in Costa Rica and working for the Universidad de Costa Rica, David was also an active performer, giving solo and chamber recitals in Costa Rica, Italy, El Salvador, Peru, Panama, Nicaragua, and across the United States.
David holds an undergraduate degree in violin performance from the University of Minnesota and is currently finishing a master’s degree in orchestral conducting and violin performance at the same institution. David is currently studying with Dr. Mark Russell Smith and Sally O’Reilly and is also working for the University of Minnesota and the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony as a staff musician and instructor.
When David is not busy conducting or playing his violin he enjoys cooking, playing chess and hiking around the many lakes in the Twin Cities area.
