Nazarova talent to shine at concert

ORGANISERS believe Hobart-born violinist Katerina Nazarova will add a little ``sparkle'' to this year's  Symphony Under the Stars .

The free Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra concert to be held in Launceston's City Park will be highlighted by the addition of Nazarova.

``She first performed with the TSO when she was only 11, which is pretty amazing,'' TSO publications manager Robert Gibson said.

``She's now based in London, where she plays with major orchestras London Symphony and Philharmonic, and two years ago won the most prestigious classical music award in the country for up and coming players, the ABC Symphony Australia young performer of the year award.

``She will play one of the movements of the Bruch Violin Concerto , one of the most popular works written for violin and orchestra, and she's playing a piece called the  Carmen Fantasy , another showpiece for violin and orchestra.''

Mr Gibson described   Symphony Under the Stars  as a ``family-friendly picnic with live music ``.

``The weather is going to be great, and the music is going to be terrific, so come along, bring your family and bring your friends and get set for a great night outdoors.''

The free event will start at 7pm.
