A Festive Afternoon

The California Youth Symphony is pleased to continue our March Festival Concert program, at which we feature our Intermediate String Ensemble under the direction of Kati Kyme, the Wind Ensemble II directed by Rosita Amador, and the CYS Associate Orchestra. 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. The Associate Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Eylar, will perform works by Beethoven, Wagner, Gliére, and Luigini, as well as featuring one of the winners of the Associate Orchestra Concerto Competition.
