Ask a typical adult, "What were you doing when you were 17?," and they'll likely blush. Caroline Goulding, however, can say she was accepting her first solo Grammy nomination.

And when she was 18? Oh, just headlining some concerts with the country's most renowned orchestras.

The young violinist will take the stage this weekend in two "Mozart and More" performances with the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra.

With music director Timothy Russell behind the baton, the group will perform Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5. The half-hour-long piece will spotlight Goulding's musical endurance and technical suavity.

The "More" in the show's title refers to the other classical mainstays ProMusica will perform: J.S. Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 1 and Bela Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances.

The orchestra will conjure the feel of the coming seasons, as well, with Frederick Delius' Two Pieces for Small Orchestra, and Gabriel Faure's courtly Pavane will round out the program.
