Suburban Youth Symphony Orchestra will present its Holiday Concert on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at 4pm at Faith United Protestant Church, 10 Hemlock Street, Park Forest, Illinois 60466.
The concert features the two performing groups each of which provides string education, enrichment, and skill through orchestral playing.
Suburban Youth Symphony comprised of 40 rapidly advancing children on violin, viola,cello,and bass from Chicago, south and southwest suburbs. This group will perform holiday favorites such as “Carol of the Bells”, Angels in the Bleak Midwinter as well as the very challenging “Christmas Concerto” by Corelli.
Incredible Opportunity Program Students who just started playing the violin through the SYSO low cost beginning program for string students will be making their debut.
Orchestra Manager, Alison Ryan remarked, “it is an absolute joy to see these students go from submitting an essay about why they wanted to play a violin to actually seeing them perform in their very first concert!”
Katie Bern, musical director of the Suburban Youth Symphony Orchestra and Incredible Opportunity Program remarked,” I am very thankful for the opportunity to work with a group of students that has such a passion for string playing. It is very rewarding to continually challenge students and have them rise to a new level every week. The students are great individuals, and it has been wonderful watching them form friendships over the years. I look forward to our December concert to show our audience everything the students have been practicing the past few months!”
Tickets may be purchased at the door or on the website, www.suburbanyouthsymphony.org $10 adults and $5 for students. There will also be a “Bring Home Bake Sale” at the concert.
