Founded in 1947, WSYO’s Youth Symphony is a charter member of the Youth Symphony Orchestra Division of the League of American Orchestras. Today, the Wichita Symphony Youth Orchestras Program is made up of four ensembles that serve more than 250 students from 22 cities and towns in central Kansas and northern Oklahoma.
The Hutchinson concert will feature the Wind Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Timothy Shade of Wichita State University. The Youth Symphony under the direction of Dr. Mark Laycock, also of Wichita State University, will then perform.
The Wichita Youth Symphony Orchestra program is a key outreach of the Wichita Symphony.
All area music students and their parents, as well as teachers and other music lovers, are encouraged to attend Monday’s concert.
