Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony invites you to attend our Fall Concert featuring Junior Strings, Preparatory Orchestra, and Sinfonia Orchestra!

 

The performance is under the direction of Mrs. Diane Turek and Ms. Jean Tweet.

 

Enjoy traditional music such as “Shortning Bread” and “Lightly Row” from our Junior Strings, along with classic symphony favorites like Bizet’s “Farandole” from L’Arlesienne Suite No. 2. You will even hear exciting new modern music, including “Rosin Eating Zombies from Outer Space,” which is a nod to the 1950s “B” monster movies, and an aggressive, high energy piece called “Antagonist.” We hope to see you there!
