TSA student Tierra Raiti wins Concerto Competition


Toledo School for the Arts student violinist Tierra Raiti won the Junior Division of the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Friends Young Artist Concerto Competition.


The Fort Wayne Philharmonic Friends sponsor a Young Artist Solo Concerto Competition each year for young students through the age of 18.  Entrants are required to memorize and perform a movement from a concerto or other standard orchestral work for solo instrument with published accompaniment. This year’s competition took place on November 17.


Tierra Raiti, a 7th grader at TSA, won the junior division of the competition and received a $500 scholarship. She played the first movement of the Mozart Violin Concerto in G major #3.  Tierra studies violin with Penny Kruse at Bowling Green State University and participates in the Studio Orchestra at Toledo School for the Arts.


“This award is indicative of Tierra’s talent combined with the hard work she brings to her musical growth,” said Jay Welenc, TSA’s studio orchestra and winds instructor.


“Tierra Raiti is a very talented and versatile violinist, participating in fiddling contests across the country, and jazz band here at TSA in addition to her classical studies. Tierra worked diligently and consistently this fall, practicing through her lunch period daily, to prepare for the Fort Wayne Concerto Competition. We are very proud of Tierra and her accomplishments at such a young age,” said Diana Anderson, TSA’s studio orchestra and strings instructor.


Tierra is not the only musical talent in the Raiti family. Her brother Vance (10th grade) recently placed 3rd in the University of Toledo Youth Concerto Competition on trumpet. Her brother, Skyelar (12th grade) won the TSO Student Concerto Competition last year and performed the Gershwin Piano Concerto with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. All three Raitis attend Toledo School for the Arts.
