The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra comprises some of the most elite young musicians of middle school and high school age from across northern Ohio. It operates in the manner of a professional orchestra, which provides grounding for its many members who go on to the top conservatories in the country and end up in major orchestras.
One of the experiences members get is performing on the stage of Severance Hall. This week, there’ll perform there with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus. Cleveland Orchestra associate conductor/COYO music director Brett Mitchell will lead the young musicians in a program that includes Sea-Blue Circuitry, a new piece by American composer Mason Bates, Claude Debussy’s Nocturnes and Francis Poulenc’s Gloria. Lisa Wong directs the chorus, and soprano Marian Vogel solos.
There’s also a pre-concert concert at 6pm with members of COYO and the youth chorus performing chamber music. Tickets are $12.50-$25.
