The Reno Philharmonic Youth Symphony Orchestra, Northern Nevada’s premier youth orchestra conducted by Dr. Jason Altieri, will be performing in Edmonds on June 24, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.

The orchestra will be performing Prelude to Hansel and Gretel (Humperdinck) and An American in Paris Suite (Gershwin), amongst others.

This season, the RPYO’s three orchestras consist of 227 members from Reno, Sparks, Carson City, Washoe Valley, Gardnerville, Fallon, and Incline Village, located in Nevada, as well as students from Truckee, Quincy, Tahoe City, and Olympic Valley located in California.

The program provides a high-level orchestral experience for woodwind, brass, percussion, and string players in grades 4-12.  The Youth Symphony Orchestra consists of the area’s most advanced players.

In June of 2011 the YSO performed at the Los Angeles Orchestra Festival in the world famous Disney Hall designed by Frank Gehry.

The RPYO is just one part of the Reno Philharmonic Association, which includes the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra, the premier performing arts organization in the Northern Nevada/Northeastern California region.

The Reno Philharmonic serves as the cornerstone for other area performing arts organizations while performing public and private concerts, including “The Nutcracker” with the AVA Ballet Theatre and the Nevada Opera.

The YSO will be making a visit to Edmonds as part of their tour to the Pacific Northwest in coordination with Edmonds’ own ACFEA Tour Consultants.

Their performance at the Edmonds Center for the Arts begins at 7 p.m., on Monday, June 24, with doors opening at 6 p.m.  Donations for admission will benefit the Carol Rowe Memorial Edmonds Food Bank, and are strongly encouraged.  Food and monetary offerings are accepted.
