Lawrence University senior Benny Wollin will perform George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” Saturday, March 8 with the Lakeshore Wind Ensemble after placing third in the recent Lakeshore Wind Ensemble Young Artist Competition held at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc.
A piano performance major from Galesburg, Ill., Wollin also received a $750 scholarship for his performance at the competition, which drew 11 musicians from around the state in piano, brass and woodwinds. He is a student in the piano studio of assistant professor Michael Mizrahi.
Now in its 26th year, the Lakeshore Wind Ensemble Young Artist Competition is open to students 16-25 years of age.
