The West Michigan Youth Symphony will showcase talented young musicians during its fall concert this Sunday, Nov. 17.
The concert, which will be held at 3 p.m, at the Mona Shores Performing Arts Center, will include performances from the WMYS as well as the organization’s fledgling string ensemble, the Debut Strings, which is under the direction of Annette Henry.
This program will feature works that will showcase the full orchestra and string ensemble, including “The Barber of Seville Overture” by Gioachino Rossini, “Finlandia” by Jean Sibelius and “Prayer for Peace” by John Williams.
Members of the WMYS were selected through an audition process and participate in weekly rehearsals. The members represent 12 middle and high schools from Whitehall to the North, Fremont to the East, Grand Haven to the South and points in between, with additional student members from Muskegon Community College.
