The Lafayette College Orchestra will perform a program of works by Felix Mendelssohn, Antonio Vivaldi, Franz Joseph Haydn, Erik Satie, and Johann Sebastian Bach in its annual spring concert at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, April 22, at the Williams Center for the Arts.

The concert is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.

Under the direction of Marka Young, director of string ensembles and instructor of violin and viola, the orchestra will begin with Mendelssohn’s Sinfonia #2 in D Major.

Nathan Tregger, a sophomore civil engineering major from Niantic, Conn., will be violin soloist in a Vivaldi’s Concerto in f minor, op. 8, No. 4, “Winter.”

A quartet made up of Eui-Young Chon, a first-year student from Uttar Pradesh, India, and Tregger on violin; Laura Feeney, a sophomore from Churchville, Pa., on cello; and guest artist Susan Bagley-Koyle on viola will perform Haydn’s Quartet, Op. 71, #1.

The orchestra will also perform Satie’s Gymnopedies #1 and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3.

Young performs as a recitalist and chamber musician on the modern and baroque violin. She has been heard throughout the northeastern United States and Canada and in Belgium, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

In addition to her concerts, Young performs regularly with the ensembles Artek and Rebel, as well as the American Classical Orchestra and the Hudson Valley Philharmonic. She has been a member of the Stony Brook Quartet, BIS (a 20th century music ensemble), and Princeton University’s Composers’ Ensemble. Young has appeared at the Banff, Bach Aria, Music Mountain, and Storm King music festivals.

Young holds master of music and doctor of musical arts degrees from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College.
