Think music education is important?  So do a lot of folks in town, including Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard, who has declared this Sunday Youth Orchestra Day. And everybody is invited take part in an afternoon “summit” demonstrating the joys of music making.

Nearly 300 high school and college students from four youth orchestras (the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra, the Olympia Youth Orchestra, the Verdugo Young Musicians Association and the Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra) will convene on stage for Youth Orchestra Day. Performances by each group will be interspersed with panels of conductors, students and teachers celebrating the importance of music education. For the finale, all four orchestras will gather to present the world premiere of a new work by Russell Steinberg, music director of the L.A. Youth Orchestra: The Net of Indra: A Youth Orchestra Anthem.

The afternoon before the summit, the PYMO will present its winter concert, “Musical Sojourns.” On the program are works inspired by a visit to a foreign country. including Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, the New World Symphony by Dvorak and Rimsky Korsakov’s Capriccio Espanol.   Tickets for both events will be available at the door each day.
