This past Sunday PYSO returned to Shadyside Presbyterian Church to perform with the Junior Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh as part of the church’s Music in a Great Space series.
The concert began with PYSO performing Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture conducted by Earl Lee, followed by the JMCP performing selections from their November 2019 performance “From Stranger to Neighbor,” under the direction of conductor Dr. Caron Daley.
PSYO and the JCMP joined together to preform Mozart’s Regina Coeli KV276 under the direction of PYSO Music Director Earl Lee. It was wonderful to see Pittsburgh’s young musicians work together on such a beautiful piece.
The concert concluded with Maestro Lee leading PYSO members in an inspiring performance of one Dvorak’s most challenging and beautiful pieces, Symphony No. 7. As the last chord resonated through the church audience members leaped to their feet with “bravos!” and thunderous applause for such an impressive achievement!
Congrats to members of PYSO and the JMCP on a wonderful performance.
Keep an eye out for details about our next show on Sunday afternoon, March 22 at Calvary United Methodist Church.
Also make sure to share the news that PYSO is now accepting applications for NEW members. You can learn more about the audition process HERE.
