NMYO is going to the chapel

May 1, 2013 by  

The Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras (NMYO) will present its Spring Afternoon of Concerts in the Chapel at Gordon College this weekend. The venue is located at 255 Grapevine Road in Wenham—in proximity to Peabody.

There is no admission charge and everyone is welcome to enjoy an afternoon of beautiful music. Each concert lasts for approximately an hour and a half, with a reception following each one. As well as this, the NMYO’s Silent Auction will take place concurrently. A full catalog of events can be found on the NMYO website, and those interested should look out for any promotional poster printing carried out to big up the event.

Pieces by Robert Bradshaw, the resident composer of NMYO, will be presented at each concert, with the Symphony Orchestra providing a premiere performance of Las Aparencias Engañan in the second show.

The first event of the afternoon of this Sunday, May 5, is a concert beginning at 2:30 pm. Featured performances include The Intermezzo Orchestra, The Prelude and Overture String Ensemble, The Flute, and Junior Flute Choirs. After that, another concert begins at 5:00 pm which will feature the Symphony Orchestra, the Select Flute Choir, and the Wind Ensemble.

NMYO’s mission is to offer fledgling musicians plenty of developmental opportunities through musical performance and service to the community. Its musicians come from several cities and take part in one of eight troupes the program offers.
