Side-by-Side with the Young People’s Orchestra
March 5 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
For a unique experience this year, the Youth Orchestra and Junior String Ensemble have combined to create The Young People’s Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, conducted by OSFL violinists Margaret Matthews and Gary Chollet. Performance dates are December 3, March 5, and May 2.
This year’s programming includes the pre-concert performance in the lobby for the Holiday Concert, the annual side-by-side concert with the OSFL, and the final concert of the schoolyear in May. Outreach performances in hospitals and nursing homes are in the works and provide mixed-generation interactions, bringing comfort and emotional support and entertainment to an appreciative, captive audience. Students will be invited to play on other outreach programs of the OSFL, such as Stories with Music at public libraries. Workshops for the 22-23 season include chamber music intensive, improvisation workshop, master classes and sectional coachings with professional musicians.
