The Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Robert McConnell, will conclude its 62nd season with powerful and exciting concerts with artist in residence Jen Augello. She will perform Mozart’s Concerto in A Major for Clarinet, K. 622. In addition, the orchestra will perform two powerful pieces, Weber’s Overture to Der Freischütz and the suites from Manuel de Falla’s ballet El Sombrero de Tres Picos “Three Cornered Hat.” The first concert will be held Saturday, March 23, 7:30 PM in Burlington’s Memorial Auditorium. Two additional performances will be given Sunday, March 24, 2013: 3:00 PM in Indian Hills Community College St. John Auditorium in Ottumwa and 7:30 PM in the Iowa Wesleyan College chapel auditorium, Mt. Pleasant. SEISO’s Spring Concerts are sponsored through the generosity of South Ottumwa Savings Bank.
Originally from the Chicago area, Jen Augello began playing the clarinet at age 10. She went on to study with Maurita Mead at the University of Iowa, where she completed a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry in only four years. As a junior, Jen was a finalist in the Iowa Center for the Arts Competition and the Coeur d’Alene Symphony Young Artist Competition. She received fellowships to attend the Rome Festival (Italy) and the Symphony Orchestra Academy of the Pacific (Canada) and began subbing with Orchestra Iowa (formerly the Cedar Rapids Symphony) in her senior year. Jen went on to study with Yehuda Gilad for one year in Los Angeles before attending the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (CCM), where she recently completed her Master of Music degree. While studying with Ixi Chen and Ben Freimuth at CCM, she earned a position with the Ohio Light Opera, a fellowship to the National Orchestral Institute, and the Artist in Residence position with the Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra’s 2012-2013 season. Jen is excited to be making her solo debut this spring!
