For the final concert of the 2023-2024 season, we’ll celebrate the leveling up of our senior musicians as they take their final bows with the VYO. The young musicians of the VYO rejoice in the coming of spring with a performance of Dvorak’s masterful Symphony No. 8. This mammoth undertaking is complemented by Sibelius’ hymn for the Finnish homeland, Finlandia, as well as a special performance by the percussion ensemble.

VYO’s mid-winter concert will take your breath away, delivering sweeping, passionate melodies sure to stir the soul and warm the heart. This concert features the soaring overture and waltz from Tchaikovsky’s “Swan Lake” as well as the ballet suite from Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Hiawatha. The young musicians rise to the challenge of Amy Beach’s Gaelic symphony, performing the third movement that conveys “the laments … romance and … dreams” of the Irish people.
