Eighteen-year-old Mallory Elizabeth Hayes, a 2012 graduate from the high school program at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, presents her senior recital Saturday, June 9, at 2 p.m. at The Village Chapel in Pinehurst.
Hayes has been playing the violin for 13 years and currently studies with Sarah Johnson. She is a five-time finalist of the Weymouth Young Musician's Festival Competition, won the Moore Philharmonic concerto competition in 2009, has been concert mistress of the Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra for two years, sat concert mistress in the Western Region All-State Honors Orchestra, received second place in the state level of the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) competition, and is a two-time winner of the Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra concerto competition.
As a result of winning the concerto competitions of the Moore Philharmonic and Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra, she was awarded scholarships for summer music intensive programs and an opportunity to perform a movement of a concerto with the orchestras. She performed movements from the concertos of Haydn, Mozart and Saint-Saens.
In the fall, she will be attending the Converse College's Petrie School of Music in Spartanburg, S.C., on a full scholarship, where she will major in violin performance and continue studying with Sarah Johnson.
Hayes will be accompanied on the piano by Darlene Skinner. Hayes will be performing movements from Bach's "Sonata" in G minor, the fiery "Devil's Trill" sonata by Tartini and edited by Fritz Kreisler, movements from Saint-Saens' "Concerto" in B minor, and pieces composed by Fritz Kreisler.
