Syracuse University offers space for Youth Orchestra concert

Posted on: April 8, 2011

An update to the Post-Standard (Syracuse, New York) report late Tuesday (4/5) about the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra’s announcement to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy states, “Syracuse University has agreed to host a concert featuring more than 150 young musicians who are in the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra’s two youth orchestras. On Sunday, the youths—who have practiced every Sunday for months—played what they thought was their last practice because the SSO had suspended its season. The SSO said it would be unable to host a concert featuring the young musicians in May. Today, the SSO announced the concert is on, thanks to Syracuse University. The Syracuse Symphony Youth Orchestra is a group of 90 elite musicians from five Central New York counties. The other group, Syracuse Symphony Youth String Orchestra, features 70 younger musicians.” Syracuse University, with the support of Ann Clarke, The Setnor School of Music, and the College of Visual and Performing Arts, will host the concert at the Schine Student Center’s Goldstein Auditorium on Sunday, May 22.
