First Youth Symphony Concerts of our 85th Season!
December 12 • 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm• Free – $10
Dr. David Jacobs, Director of UO Orchestral Studies, leads the Eugene-Springfield Youth Symphony in their first concert of this special season. Since 1934, this community has enjoyed the amazing young musicians of our community.
ESYO’s premier youth orchestra boasts some of the area’s finest young musicians, and is the second oldest youth orchestra in the country! These musicians play with astonishing sophistication and artistry – you’ll need to remind yourself that those are teenagers on stage.
The concert features an incredible program of famous classical music. Featured will be concerto competition winner Isabelle Morgan, performing the first movement of the Symphonie Espagnole by Edouard Lalo. The first half of the program opens with the rousing Ruslan & Ludmila overture by Glinka, and includes Farandole from the L’Arlesienne Suite No. 2 by Bizet. A short intermission gives you a chance to purchase a miniature ornament for your holiday decorating! The second half of the concert brings you the exciting first movement of Borodin’s 2nd Symphony and Gershwin’s delightful American in Paris. A fun version of the “Thunder and Lightning Polka” ends the concert in high spirits!
Please join us for a lovely evening and help support the symphony players of the future!
