I have no relationship to any of the members of the youth orchestra, but I remembered how much I enjoyed the previous performance, so I went again. As before, I was amazed at how professionally this group of young people performed. And the two soloists, for their very young ages, were quite gifted and capable. For only 36 musicians to render such delightful harmony and to be consistently on target with vastly different and challenging compositions, it was a treat to my ears. I felt privileged to be there in the small but appreciative audience. I have to applaud the gifted and brilliant Director and conductor, Brian Keimath whose love for these kids shows up!!! His narration that led into each piece performed was a treasure to have for greater appreciation of the entire concert. Bravo and kudos to all! I will be there at the Glendale Youth concert.
