Young soloist to perform with Diablo Symphony

Flautist Annie Wu, 16, is student at Foothill High

Annie Wu, a 16-year-old award-winning flautist from Pleasanton, will perform with the Diablo Symphony on Nov. 18 in Walnut Creek as part of the orchestra's 50th anniversary season.

Wu will play Ibert's Flute Concerto during the concert, which begins at 2 p.m. in the Lesher Center for the Arts, 1601 Civic Drive. Tickets, $10-$25, are on sale at 943-7469.

A member of the San Francisco Youth Symphony, Wu last year became the youngest winner of the young flute soloist competition in the 33-year history of National Flute Association. She attends Foothill High.

This summer Wu performed in six concert venues in Europe, including the Berlin Philharmonic Hall. She also was a soloist with the Vienna International Orchestra in Austria.

In Sunday's concert, the symphony's new conductor-music director, Matilda Hofman, will lead the orchestra in works by Mozart, Verdi, Brahms, Barber and Chabrier.
