Description

The GYO is in its 21st season performing at the Alex Theater to an enthusiastic audience. The GYO was formed in 1989 to provide talented young musicians from Glendale and its neighboring communities an opportunity to experience high-level orchestral music making.

The Orchestra participates in a partnership program with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and has performed at the Disney Hall on November 11, 2007.

Over the past several years, the orchestra has traveled to Toronto, San Francisco, Phoenix, and held a chamber music retreat in Santa Barbara.

Brad Keimach, the orchestra music director, is a graduate of the prestigious Juilliard School and is a seasoned conductor of both professional and youth orchestras. He studied conducting with Leonard Bernstein and made his Carnegie Hall debut in 1986. Under his leadership, the orchestra has achieved a very high level of excellence.

Dvorak: Slavonic Dance, op.46 #8

Mozart: Concerto #10 for 2 Pianos

I. Allegro

Haydn: Symphony #104

Mozart: Symphony #39

The soloists for the double piano concerto are twins: Katherine and Julia Park, who also play cello and violin in the GYO.
