Young people to bring music to Tacoma

November 19, 2013 by  

This weekend, the Tacoma Youth Artist Concert will provide people with the opportunity to come out and support young people while enjoying the music of intermediate to advance wind and string players. The organizers may have used poster printing and flyer printing to advertise this concert to people with an ear for music in and around the area.

The concert is presented by the Tacoma Youth Symphony Association. During this performance, guests will enjoy the Light Cavalry Overture by Franz Von Suppe, the Flute Concerto No 1 in G Major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the Petite Suite by Claude Debussy, and the Danse McCabre by Camille Saint-Saens. They will also be treated to the flute-playing skills of Janelle Barrera.

The orchestra performs three season concerts each year, including a costume concert, an outreach concert, and a school tour. Conducted by Dale Johnson, it has just celebrated its 50th Anniversary season. Students in the orchestra range in age from 17 to 21 and come from all types of backgrounds.

Tickets for this concert cost between $7 and $17 depending on which seats are selected. The Tacoma Youth Artists Concert will be performed this Saturday, November 23, beginning at 7:00 pm at the Urban Grace Church located at 902 Market Street in Tacoma, Washington.
