Our musicians have worked hard all Fall preparing their first concert! In this combined event, all SVYS ensembles will perform: The Symphony Orchestra, the Concert Orchestra, the Preparatory Strings, and the Junior Strings.
The adult community orchestra presents its first concert of the season. These dedicated musicians will perform under the direction of the SVYS Music Director and Conductor.
