Youth Orchestras of Charlotte Send-Off Concert
The Youth Orchestras of Charlotte (YOC) will embark on its first-ever tour from February 15 to February 17, 2020 with music director Dr. Ernest Pereira. The YOC will perform at the world-renowned John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC at 2pm on February 17. The YOC is 1 of four select orchestras from throughout the United States chosen to perform in the Capital Orchestra Festival. Before departing, the YOC will present a send-off concert at 7:30pm on Monday, January 27, 2020 at Halton Theater. The YOC will perform Rimsky Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol, Dances from DeFalla's Three Cornered Hat and Mozart's Symphony No. 25. The YOC will also be joined by the YOC Flute Choir for this performance. "Charlotte has a gem in its crown in the Youth Orchestras of Charlotte. This organization features four ensembles of the most promising and accomplished young musicians in our metropolitan area, and the top ensemble, the Youth Orchestra of Charlotte, will be representing the city when it performs at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC in February," comments Dr. Pereira. "In my over thirty years of conducting youth orchestras, I have seen our young performers grow in ability and execution to a level where, if you close your eyes and listen, it is difficult to tell that you are hearing an orchestra of young adults and not a professional symphony. These committed, passionate, talented musicians from the greater Charlotte area represent a wide variety of backgrounds and circumstances, and they deserve to be celebrated." The talented student musicians in the Youth Orchestra of Charlotte will be joined at the Capital Orchestra Festival by the Rochester Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (NY), The Cherry Hill East Symphony Orchestra (NJ) and the Choate Rosemary Hall Orchestra (CT).
