Performance student Antonio Dowling, violinist, was chosen as a finalist in
d’Alene Symphony Young Artists Competition. Dowling, a junior, has been
studying violin with Professor Quinton
Morris since his freshman year in the College of Arts and Sciences. Morris

“Dowling will be competing
against students from top conservatories and music schools, including Oberlin,
Eastman, and Curtis,” Morris said. “He has exceptional talent and will represent
our program very well.”
Dowling will perform Mozart’s Fifth Concerto at
the competition, set for January 5 in Coeur d’Alene. Winners are invited to
perform with the symphony in the spring.
