The Contemporary Youth Orchestra has added a special concert for our 18th season.
On February 2, 2013, CYO will present an entire concert of ECLECTIC CONCERTOS featuring three CYO musicians as soloists.
The three works on this program are not performed often and are way outside the box of typical.

Concerto Recipient Concert

Concerto for Water Percussion and Orchestra, Movement 2 – Tan Dun

This is the first time in our history that an entire concert is dedicated to CYO members as soloists. We always have one perform, after an audition process, with the orchestra on our opening concert each season. This season it became more obvious that the skill level is rising as well as the type of concertos these musicians are studying.
New Works Series
This concert series focuses on commissioning and premiering a concerto that features a member of the Cleveland Orchestra, a College or Conservatory teacher, and local and national musicians.
Works by young and emerging composer are often included in CYO's season opening concert emphasizing the creation of new music and the composers who contribute these NEW WORKS.
The recipient of our concert auditions and a major work from the 20th or 21st century are also featured in our NEW WORKS CONCERTS.
