    feature an individual artist

    What doe sthis "feature" mean? The translation goes "make an individual artist the main (character) player" and I think it's a liberal translation.

    ex)A symphony orchestra is made up of the performances of each individual artist...At times, the orchestra may feature an individual artist. However, she always acknowledges the other musicians' accompaniments...

    An orchestra might play a work in which there is a prominent part for, say, violin. In this case a guest violinist, or the principal violinist of the orchestra, may be featured and is often named individually in the concert program.
    C. A. Burnett's "Rhapsody No. 3" (1884), featuring Hubert Sumlin, violin.
    So I feel the translation is alright.

    not a teacher
