The Johnstown Symphony Youth Orchestra (JSYO) will perform their winter concert on Sunday, January 12, 2020, 3:30pm at the Arcadia Theater in Windber. They will play an hour-long program that includes music from Hamilton, Verdi's opera Aïda, and Danzón No. 2 by Mexican composer Arturo Marquez, a piece made popular by the Venezuelan music education program, "El Sistema." In addition, both the JSYO String and Brass Quartets will make their debut performances of the season. "We have a remarkable group of young musicians who are both exceptionally talented, and who work extremely hard," conductor David Anderson remarked. "Keeping in mind the overall season theme of 'Made in Johnstown,' this concert presents a wonderful opportunity to support the music happening in our community presented by gifted young musicians." The Youth Orchestra includes approximately 30 students from 12 schools in Johnstown and the surrounding region. Tickets are $7 and available at the door before the performance.
