A Festival Afternoon

The California Youth Symphony is delighted to build on the success of last year's festival format, bringing together the combined talents of the CYS Associate Orchestra under the baton of Music Director Leo Eylar, the CYS Intermediate String Ensemble conducted by Kati Kyme, and the CYS Wind Ensemble II conducted by Rosita Amador. The CYS Associate Orchestra will feature soloist Christine Lee as one of the two winners of this season's Associate Orchestra Concerto Competition, as well as performing works by Britten and Beethoven. We round out our festival with the incredibly virtuosic orchestral showpiece Capriccio espagnole by Rimsky-Korsakov. This is a wonderful opportunity to observe and enjoy the full scope of the CYS program and to support the collaborative efforts of all of the groups involved. Don't miss it!
