Youth symphony celebrates 30 seasons starting in November

VERO BEACH – The Treasure Coast Youth Symphony kicks off its 30th Anniversary concert season on Monday evenings beginning in November, celebrating three decades of music education and orchestral training for hundreds of young musicians in the Treasure Coast community.

“Memorable Solos” is the theme for the November concert series, which includes masterworks that have solos so finely crafted that they become defining signatures of these pieces. The program includes Rossini’s William Tell Overture, Mendelssohn’s Fingal’s Cave, Saint Saen’s Danse Macabre, movements from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnole, and the Comedian’s Gallop by Kabalevsky.

Conducting the three concerts in November are John Enyart, Ph.D., founder of the Treasure Coast Symphony in 1987, Thomas Servinsky, founder of Academy Orchestra in 2010, and Benjamin Enyart.

The concert schedule for Fall includes performances at the Waxlax Center for Performing Arts at St. Edward’s Upper School on Monday, Nov. 6, in Vero Beach, at The Lyric Theatre in downtown Stuart on Nov. 13, and the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens on Nov. 20.

All concerts begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the Waxlax Center are $10 at the door with open seating. The Lyric Theatre tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students through the box office with special pricing available in advance for groups of 10 or more. Tickets for the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens are $15 adults/$7 students. Special pricing is also available at the Eissey Campus Theatre for groups of 10 or more.
