Season Finale Concert

Maestro Eylar closes the Associate Orchestra season with a program that is guaranteed to please and dazzle listeners, including classic favorites such as the Dance of the Hours from Ponchielli's La Gioconda and "Montagues and Capulets" from Prokofiev's beloved ballet Romeo and Juliet. The orchestra will also perform the complete music from Bizet's L'Arlesienne Suites 1 & 2, as well as introducing CYS audiences for the first time to music by the British composer Coleridge-Taylor, as we perform this composer's delightful Petite Suite for Orchestra. Our soloist for this closing concert will be Associate Orchestra Competition winner Darrin Cheng, performing Rosauro's Concerto for Marimba and String Orchestra. Don't miss this exciting season finale!
