DPYO Bassoonist, Maris Haugrud (L), and DPYO Harpist, Elsie Bradley (R), were both chosen as winners of the 2015 Young Artist Talent search, an annual talent search conducted by Discover Classical.org in Dayton, a talent search supported by University of Dayton Department of Music and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra. Both Maris and Elsie are the first bassoonist and first harpist, respectively, to win the talent search! Both Maris and Elsie, along with the other winners, performed in a concert this past May in the Sears Recital Hall at the University of Dayton. Maris and Elsie’s interviews with Shaun Yu, the President and CEO of Discover Classical.org, which were also broadcast on Discover Classical.org can be heard below.
