The spring concert is this weekend on March 29!

Before the concert, the Youth Orchestra Wind Quintet will perform a few movements from Ferenc Farkas' Early Hungarian Dances from the 17th Century in the main lobby.
Added to the program, between Symphonie Espagnole and Montegues and Capulets, is Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man. This piece features the Youth Orchestra Brass Ensemble.
Following the concert is a reception in the Gibson Room (upstairs) with cookies and punch provided by the Sinfonia and Youth Orchestra families.
