BOSTON — On June 4, Haig Hovsepian performed as the featured soloist with the New England Conservatory (NEC) Preparatory School Youth Philharmonic Orchestra’s (YPO) final annual concert.
Hovsepian won the 2016 NEC Prep School Concerto Competition’s top-most division and thus was entitled to perform with the YPO in its final concert.
After an intense and dynamic performance of Shostakovich Symphony No. 1 in F minor and Khachaturian Concerto for Violin in D Minor under the direction of David Loebel, he received thunderous applause with standing ovations from the appreciative audience.
Hovsepian is a junior at Belmont High School. He plays the saxophone and is a proud member of his school’s award winning wind ensemble and the Jazz Band.
