Glendale Youth Orchestra Concert Set for March 5

The Glendale Youth Orchestra will be performing in a concert titled, “Exploring the Cosmos,” featuring works inspired by outer space and the greater universe. The event will be held Sunday, March 5.
Works will include Gustav Holst’s “Mars, the Bringer of War” and “Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity” from “The Planets, Op. 32,” Haydn’s overture to his opera “Il mondo della luna,” and excerpts from space-themed films, such as “Star Wars” and “Star Trek.”
“Tapping into the minds of all of these composers from different centuries on how they imagined outer space and the universe to be through their music is something truly fascinating. The commonality we can find among all of these works spanning almost 250 years amazes me most, as we can find in each of these works a sense of wonderment and curiosity,” said Music Director Henry Shin.
Alongside these works, the Glendale Youth Orchestra will also be showcasing two of their annual concerto competition winners.
Local resident Nathan Scherrer, a senior at Clark Magnet High School, will be performing Eric Ewazen’s “Concerto for Bass Trombone and Orchestra.” Concertmaster Jason Chen will be performing the masterful and virtuosic Violin Concerto No. 4 by Henri Vieuxtemps.
Adult tickets are $18 and may be purchased from the Alex Theatre Box Office. Tickets for students, children and seniors are priced at $16 each.
The Alex Theatre is located at 216 N. Brand Blvd. For more information, visit alextheatre.org.
