"Rise to fame" will be a common theme in the evening's program, which opens the second half of the symphony's 2012-13 season with works by Mozart and Haydn along with a stunning performance of Beethoven featuring Vernell Gregg honoree William Chiang.
The orchestra will present Mozart's lively La clemenza di Tito Overture and Haydn's Symphony No. 101, known informally as "The Clock." Soloist Chiang will perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37.

Chiang has been recognized for his superior interpretation and piano technique with prizes at competitions in Lewisville, Plano and Houston. He carries on a family tradition of musical excellence, following in the footsteps of his sister, Alison, who performed with the symphony in 2008.
