California’s best youth orchestra to perform at UVic (CONTEST)


Get ready for this incredibly eargasmic event!

The Young People’s Symphony Orchestra from California will be travelling all the way to the University of Victoria to grace our earbuds with their award-winning performance.

The recital will feature Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 in F minor, music by Dvorak (Carnival Overture), Cavaterra (The Peninsula: Overture and The Path of History from the Monterey Suite), and Vaughan Williams (Concerto for Tuba and Orchestra).

And it will all be performed by 90 extremely talented musicians aged between 12 to 20 years old, directed by seasoned Music Director/Conductor, Mr. David Ramadanoff.

Their stop in Victoria is one of many, as the orchestra will also be touring other major cities like Vancouver and Seattle. Founded in 1936 in Berkeley, California, YPSO is the oldest independent youth orchestra in California, and the second oldest in the USA.

These musical prodigies will be performing in Victoria on Tuesday, June 19th, and here’s how two lucky winners can score free tickets to the event!
