Local Youth Orchestra Members Playing in Free Concert
Four Wakefield residents are musicians in the Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras.
Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras (NMYO) will present a free community concert on Sunday, March 10th at 3 p.m., at the Free Church in Andover. The concert will feature members of NMYO’s fourteen chamber ensembles performing music by composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, and Stamitz.
NMYO Symphony Orchestra musicians, and select members of Intermezzo Orchestra, participate in an eight-week chamber music program in which they are placed into small ensembles and coached by visiting professional musicians. NMYO chamber musicians perform in outreach concerts throughout the region in April as part of NMYO’s community service program, Youth Serving Through Music.
This concert is sponsored in part by the Demoulas Foundation, the Fuller Foundation, and the Nathaniel and Elizabeth P. Stevens Foundation. The performance is free and appeals to audiences of all ages.
