ESYO 360

May 5, 2015

  ESYO 360 is a celebration at Proctors in Schenectady on May 17th of the past, present, and future of Empire State Youth Orchestras (ESYO).

The concert will feature all nine of ESYO's performing groups - playing a wide variety of music - jazz, band, classical, percussion. The grand finale will have 350 musicians - current ESYO musicians and ESYO alumni - all on the stage performing at the same time!

Helen Cha-Pyo is the Music Director and Conductor of ESYO and she joins us now along with Hannah Dick, principal timpanist and a percussionist in ESYO’s Youth Orchestra.

 Each season, more than 300 talented musicians, ages 9-18, from the greater Capital Region of New York and western New England, enjoy outstanding educational and performance opportunities as members in one or more of the Empire State Youth Orchestra’s two full orchestras, wind orchestra, string ensemble, two jazz ensembles, and three percussion ensembles.

This Sunday, ESYO will present a concert of Russian music at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall and on April 4th they will join the Cathedral of All Saints in Albany to produce/perform a concert to benefit Northern Rivers.

Here to tell us more are ESYO’s new Executive Director, Becky Carlos and Music Director, Helen Cha-Pyo.
