On Saturday’s broadcast, we present selections from the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Encore Chamber Orchestra concert at the Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance on December 7, 2014. The Encore Chamber Orchestra is made up of student musicians from the CYSO who plan to pursue a career in music. They are led by CYSO Music Director Allen Tinkham.
This program will feature Arvo Pärt’s meditative Silouans Song and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s beloved Scheherazade, Op. 35. For more information about the Encore Chamber Orchestra and the CYSO, please visit Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra.
