Over President’s Day weekend in February 2023, our very own Youth Symphony Orchestra (YSO) has been invited to perform in the Kennedy Center in Washington DC., one of the most notable classical music venues in the world. The 4-day, 3-night stay will include a clinic with a guest conductor and joint concert with other youth orchestras. They will also have the opportunity to attend many iconic landmarks, including National Monuments, War Memorials, the Holocaust Museum, the Smithsonian, and Capitol Hill.
Touring on this scale is a life changing experience for young musicians. Like athletic teams that travel together, touring encourages team building and bonding within the group. Working toward any performance raises the level; working toward a performance this prestigious will be the catalyst for the YSO to reach the next level.
