The Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra marks a 75th anniversary this weekend, and 90-year-old William Foster is one of many music lovers looking forward to the celebration. Through the years, nine conductors and more than 7,000 young musicians — including Foster — have shared their talents with the youth orchestra.
Along with the current crop of 102 high school students from 24 schools throughout the Miami Valley, they’ll be honored at the upcoming 75th anniversary concert May 5 at the Benjamin & Marian Schuster Performing
Arts Center. The public is encouraged to attend.
Youth Orchestra Conductor Patrick Reynolds, assistant conductor of the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra, has chosen musical selections designed to honor all of those who’ve had a hand in making the youth orchestra successful over the years — especially music teachers. The afternoon program will open with the Overture from Candide by Leonard Bernstein, followed by “Dusk” by Steven Bryant. It will conclude with Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 “From the New World.” | link to story
