“The AYS wows an audience with not-to-be missed performances.” Los Angeles Times

Description

Program:

  • VERDI | La Forza del Destino
  • BRUCH | Violin Concerto
  • DVORAK | Symphony No. 8
  • Alexander Treger, conductor
  • Vadim Gluzman, violinist

The American Youth Symphony was started in 1964, led by Mehli Mehta for 33 years and perpetuated by Alexander Treger to this day.  It allows young people to create the sounds and keep alive the great tradition of orchestral playing.  Today, over 100 graduates of AYS are playing in major orchestras around the world.

Classically-trained impresario Ernest Fleischmann led the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Hollywood Bowl for 27 years, changing the landscape of the arts in Los Angeles and bringing worldwide attention to the city, while at the same time building the L.A. Philharmonic into one of the country’s most respected musical institutions. He has received many national and international awards, including Germany’s Grand Cross of the Order of Merit and the rank of Officier of France’s Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Mr. Fleischmann serves as a consultant and as an honorary life member and board member of arts organizations, including the L.A. Philharmonic, the Hollywood Bowl and the Colburn School of Performing Arts, and is artistic advisor to Germany’s Scheswig-Holstein Festival.
