Program 3

Winter and Spring Orchestras Concerts Series

This concert series gives the close to 250 members of our 4 less advanced groups the opportunity to perform on stage, in front of a large audiance. Since all 5 of the groups perform, it gives the students the opportunity to hear what they can achieve if they continue in their music studies.  Each group rehearses and then performs 20 to 45 minutes of orchestral music that is suitible for their skill levels.  The winter concert is held at a high school auditorium.  In April 2011 we held the spring concert at the Peace Center for the Performing Arts concert hall.. We had 856 in the audience and 300 students performing.

Program 4

Middle School Orchestra Festival

MSOF is a 2 day festival for middle school string students who are not currently involved in an orchestra program.   Students are given the opportunity to learn from both local music teachers and advance students in small section rehearsals.  They rehearse as a full orchestra conducted by a guest conductor.  The goal of MSOF is to provide these students with the "orchestra experience" to encourage them to continue in their music studies and experience music they wouldn't normally be exposed to.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"Music is an integral part of all of our lives.  If you don't believe me, think about the last major event you attended - wedding, funeral, graduation.  What would it have been like with out music?  What would a movie be with out music?  What would our lives be without music?  Music and the arts are how we as humans express ourselves.  It reaches inside us and make us "right".  It causes us to feel.
 
GCYO is about teaching young people to make and experience music.  Many of our students go on to be music professionals so we are helping to ensure the future of music.  Those who don't pursue music after high school will be the next generation of listeners and concert goers, ensuring that future musicians have an audience!"
