Mi Familia

The YOSA Philharmonic joins Juilliard-trained electric violinist Tracy Silverman for a family-focused concert. Called "the greatest living exponent of the electric violin" by the BBC, Silverman and his custom six-string instrument have been specifically written for by such composers as John Adams and Terry Riley.

  • Humperdinck—Hansel and Gretel Prelude: The prologue to this fairy tale opera captures the adventuring spirit of the child heroes, the ominous threat of death by oven, and the lack of foresight inherent in a breadcrumb trail.
  • Ravel—Mother Goose Suite: Originally composed for duo piano, Mother Goose was written for Mimi and Jean Godebski, ages 6 and 7. Throughout the work, Ravel draws on the tales of Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Beauty and the Beast to entertain his young audience.
  • Bunch—Embrace – Concerto for Electric Violin and Orchestra: Portland-native Kenji Bunch inspires adolescent musicians as the composer-in-residence for Young Concert Artists, the Craftsbury Chamber Players, and the Chintimini Chamber Music Festival. His piece Embrace demonstrates why the New York Times hailed him as a "composer to watch."
  • Britten—The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra: Commissioned for a documentary film titled Instruments of the Orchestra, Benjamin Britten's affectionate opus spotlights each section of the orchestra one by one, then all together.

Youth Orchestras of San Antonio

There are six orchestras in YOSA's orchestra program: the YOSA Prelude Strings, Capriccio Stings, Sinfonietta Strings, Symphony, Philharmonic, and Flute Choir. Although the Philharmonic draws in the most talented students in the region for professional-level concerts, all the orchestras guide students toward an enriched understanding of the world and the music within it. Together, they benefit more than 1,500 young people in the region—through direct involvement with the orchestra and through offshoot programs such as the free after-school instruction sessions on the west side.
