The young musicians of the Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra Program completed their season with a magnificent spring concert in the Hermann Theater (Simon Center for the Arts) at Falmouth Academy, conducted by Mark Miller.
Both the Repertory Ensemble and Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra took the stage for the second time this year, beautifully performing works by Georg Philipp Telemann, Jean-Baptiste Lully, Georges Bizet, Charles Gounod, George Frideric Handel, and Vaughan Williams.
Highlights from the concert included a lovely solo feature for harpist Remi Schreiner; an enthusiastic musical tribute in support of the people of Ukraine; and a gorgeously lush performance of 49th Parallel, a composition by Williams that deserves to be heard much more often.
We congratulate all of our members on a remarkable return to live music and look forward to continuing our mission to inspire joy through music!
The Cape Symphony Youth Orchestra (CSYO) Program is a year-round program that consists of two ensembles: CSYO and Repertory Winds & Strings. Members of both groups will learn to rehearse and perform like the Cape Symphony, exploring the beauty and intricacy of history’s greatest compositions while continuing to grow their musicianship and technical ability. We welcome all young musicians from ages 12 to 21 who play orchestral instruments to audition for placement in one of the two ensembles offered.
CSYO will be hosting auditions for the 2022/23 Season in June. Prospective students can sign up for an audition day/time here. The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, June 1.
