Youth Philharmonic shares concert with Lincoln Junior Youth Orchestra

April 22, 2013

Our Youth Philharmonic embarked on a highly successful music exchange with the Lincoln Junior Youth Orchestra in Lincoln, Nebraska on Sat, Apr 20, 2013.  Under the direction Dr. Karen Becker, the Lincoln Junior Youth Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra whose members are comprised of the same age group as our Youth Philharmonic.

During this day-long event, Youth Philharmonic received sectional coachings from members of the Lincoln Symphony Orchestra, worked with Dr. Karen Becker (LJYO Conductor) on the repertoire for their portion of the concert, participated in side-by-side rehearsals with the Lincoln Junior Youth Orchestra and presented a combined concert for an audience of parents, friends and school officials.

This trip marked the first very tour opportunity for any of our Youth Orchestras and was a memorable and exciting experience for all involved.  Our Youth Philharmonic will be hosting the LJYO here in Des Moines for a second music exchange in April 2014.
