VALLEJO — The Vallejo Symphony has added a third concert, five guest artists and performances in three Vallejo venues for its 2013-14 season.

Opening night for the 82nd season is 8 p.m. Oct. 12. The show will focus on a fresh look at seminal works by Beethoven and Mozart. Violinist Emma Steele will be featured on Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4.

Steele has won awards in many competitions, including the Sibelius International Violin Competition, where she was a finalist and received the Young Talent Prize. She has performed solos with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Polish Radio Amadeus Chamber Orchestra.

The concert is at the Empress Theatre, 330 Virginia St., Vallejo.

The second concert is scheduled for 3 p.m. Jan. 5, 2014, and will begin by exploring the rhythms of Bartók’s Romanian Dances. Craig Reiss and Richard Andaya will be showcased on violin and cello against the orchestral background in the Brahms “Double Concerto.” The show is at Touro University’s Lander Hall on Mare Island.

Andaya has appeared as soloist with the San Francisco Conservatory Orchestra, the Colorado Philharmonic, the National Repertory Orchestra and the Sacramento Symphony. Reiss is associate principal second violin with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra and has been a featured soloist with the San Francisco Ballet Orchestra, the Carmel Bach Festival and the National Repertory Orchestra.

The season wraps up at 7 p.m. May 10, 2014, at the Hogan Middle School Auditorium, 850 Rosewood Ave., Vallejo.

Handel’s “Water Music Suite No. 2″ will be featured with Brahms’ “German Requiem,” performed by soloists and the combined forces of the Vallejo Symphony, the Solano Choral Society, the Vallejo Choral Society and Samantics.

Featured singers are soprano Lauren Woody and bass-baritone Paul Cheak.

Woody recently made her international operatic debut in Beijing, China. Cheak has been performing for 40 years and has performed with the San Diego Opera, Berkeley Opera, North Bay Opera and Festival Opera of Walnut Creek.

“Know the Score” preconcert talks are presented one hour before each performance and feature conversations between maestro David Ramadanoff and guest artists. Ramadanoff will also present “Know the Score” on radio station KZCT 89.5 FM, Sept. 6, Nov. 22 and April 4, 2014. All programs will air at 11 a.m. They are recorded and put on the symphony’s Facebook page prior to the concerts.

Ramadanoff was appointed music director of the Vallejo Symphony in 1983. He began his professional studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music and Temple University, and continued them as a doctoral candidate at the Juilliard School from 1972 to 1975, where he also taught conducting. In 1975, he was appointed assistant conductor of the San Francisco Symphony. In 1977, he became associate conductor.

In 1979, he became music director of the Master Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra in the Palo Alto-San Jose area. Ramadanoff still remains in this position.

The symphony’s “Vallejo Symphony Presents” enters its second year with recitals by soprano Carrie Hennessey at 3 p.m. Nov. 17 and 3 p.m. Feb. 23, 2014, with violinist Franklyn D’Antonio. Both will be at the First Presbyterian Church of Vallejo, 1350 Amador St.
