The Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra presents its first concert of the season on Saturday, December 14 at 7 p.m. at Corbett Auditorium at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. Under the direction of CSO Assistant Conductor and CSYO Conductor William White and CSYO Assistant Conductor Isaac Selya, the CSYO will perform rich repertoire not available to many youth orchestras. The concert begins with Wagner’s Rienzi Overture and continues with the World Premiere of iubilo, a work by CCM student Ty Niemeyer in commemoration of the CSYO’s 50th Season. Student violinist Isabella Geis then takes the stage for the first movement of Sibelius’ Violin Concerto. The performance closes with Sibelius’ popular First Symphony in its entirety.
Tickets for the CSYO Winter Concert are just $10 for adults and $8 and can either be purchased at the door, by calling the CSO Box Office at (513) 381-3300 or online by visiting cincinnatisymphony.org/csyo.
