Carnegie Mellon Baritones Hit a High Note at PCS Competition

PITTSBURGH-Two Carnegie Mellon University School of Music voice students, Thomas Octave, (A'05) and Liam J. Bonner (A'03) received first place honors at The Pittsburgh Concert Society's annual Young Artists Auditions on Saturday, January 5, 2002.

The selected honorees, both baritones, were each granted a $500.00 scholarship. They will also be featured in one of two formal concerts sponsored by The Pittsburgh Concert Society on January 27 and February 17, 2002.

According to Alan Fletcher, Head of the School of Music at Carnegie Mellon, the PCS made two excellent selections. "Liam Bonner combines a great natural voice with superb musicianship. He was recently featured in our musical production, The Most Happy Fella. " Thomas Octave, still in his first year here, already shows great artistry: he is definitely a future star."

The adjudicator for the 2002 PCS Young Artists Auditions was Northwestern University School of Music Dean Bernard Dobroski (Aí68). The Pittsburgh Concert Society, founded in 1943, sponsors the audition to actively promote music in Pittsburgh.
