Toledo Youth Orchestras to perform at Peristyle

From TOLEDO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA The Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras (TSYO) are composed of the most talented young musicians from various areas of Northwest Ohio and Southern Michigan. The opportunity to perform with a group of musicians who share a similar dedication to musicianship and quality of performance is a great supplemental experience for serious young artists. On February 4, at 2 p.m. at the Toledo Museum of Art Peristyle Theater, the Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras will perform their second concert of the season. The performance on Sunday afternoon will feature the TSYO’s Symphonic Orchestra and Concert Strings ensemble, conducted by Patrick Barrett and the Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Wasim Hawary. Winners of the Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras Solo Competition, Erin Gardiner and Cole Habekost, kick off the program with pre-concert music beginning at 1:40 p.m. Ms. Gardiner, a senior at Perrysburg High School, will perform the second movement of Barber’s Violin Concerto and Mr. Habekost, a Toledo School for the Art senior at Waterville, will perform the first movement of Wieniawski’s Concerto No. 2, both accompanied by Clint Fox. The TSYO will perform selections by eminent composers Jean Sibelius, Modest Mussorgsky, William Rand, principal horn player of the Philharmonic Orchestra,…
