Mary Catherine McKibben, from the Cumberland community in Webster County, a senior piano performance major at Mississippi College, will be performing with the Mississippi Symphony Orchestra on Feb. 4.
The orchestra is the largest professional performing arts organization in the state, performing more than 120 concerts a year. Every two years, the orchestra collaborates with the Mississippi College music department in a recital known as the Honors Recital.
Students from the music department audition for this opportunity to perform a piece with the orchestra. This year, as well as in 2011, Mary Catherine was one of the students selected to perform with the symphony. She will be playing the 3rd Movement of Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto in C minor, Op.37.
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. in Swor Auditorium at Mississippi College in Clinton.
Mary is the daughter of Phillip and Daphne McKibben.
