Music spans one-and-a-half centuries and four distinct composing styles
On Sunday, March 11 at 3 pm at the Kettering Seventh-Day Adventist Church, Conductor Karen Young and the Dayton Philharmonic Junior String Orchestra will present the second of two, free annual Concerts. Performed by musicians who are currently students in grades 6–12, the repertoire includes works by four different composers.
Conductor Karen Young will start the concert with Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 83, The Hen. Then, Young will lead the JSO in Schubert’s Five German Dances and Seven Trios. Gioacchino Rossini’s Overture to La Gazza Ladra follows. And the concert concludes with the JSO playing Vittorio Monti’s Czardas.
This will be the last performance for JSO graduating seniors Katie Smitley and Anastasia Arnold, both violists.
Junior String Orchestra members rehearse every Saturday from 9:30 am-12:00 pm, September – March. The Junior String Orchestra consists of 51 students in grades 6-12 representing 22 different schools in the Greater Dayton area. Membership in the Orchestra is through competitive audition.
