Mozart lovers are in for a treat on Jan. 25 and 26 when two principal players of the Greenwich Symphony, flutist Susan Rotholz and harpist Victoria Drake, will take a turn as guest soloists, performing Mozart’s elegant Concerto for Flute and Harp.

Ms. Rotholz will also introduce a composition by symphony conductor, David Gilbert, entitled Phoenix Madrigal. Ms. Rotholz has been principal flutist of the Greenwich Symphony since 1999. In addition, she is currently principal flutist of the New York Chamber Ensemble and of the New England Bach Festival and is a member of the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, the New York Pops and The Little Orchestra Society.

Ms. Drake is a freelance musician based in New York City and has been a concerto soloist with more than a dozen orchestras. She appears frequently as a solo recitalist and as a chamber musician. Ms. Drake achieved finalist status at the 10th International Harp Contest in Israel.

Also included in the program are the Variaciones Concertantes by Alberto Ginastera and Robert Schumann’s Overture, Scherzo and Finale. The concerts will take place on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 26 at 4 p.m. in the Greenwich High School Auditorium. A free, pre-concert lecture will be given by Associate Conductor Tara Simoncic one hour before each performance. Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for students.
