Metropolitan Youth Symphony’s (MYS) Fall Term takes place online with two virtual concerts, including their first-ever Holiday Spectacular.
Concerts will be streamed on the MYS YouTube channel. The Fall Concert is November 21 and the Holiday musical celebration is December 23.
In the Fall Concert, Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suites 1 & 2, will be presented, featuring narration recorded by the students. It also includes works by American composers Florence Price and William Grant Still.
The Symphony has partnered with youth orchestras from Mexico, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Haiti and El Salvador to offer international students the opportunity to participate in their online program.
“With geographical boundaries no longer relevant thanks to modern technology, we are thrilled to give our students access to an extraordinary roster of world-class musicians from top international orchestras and schools,” says MYS Music Director Raúl Gómez.
