Glendale Youth Orchestra Presents “Scheherazade” at the Alex Theatre

As part of the Glendale Youth Orchestra’s 35th anniversary season, it will be presenting Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade,” a grand symphonic poem, featuring various members and sections of the orchestra at the Alex Theatre on March 3.
Alongside “Scheherazade,” the concert will open with John Williams’ “Olympic Fanfare and Theme,” while also featuring two young soloists, 17-year-old Ingrid Herman of La Crescenta and 12-year-old Simon Yao of Camarillo. Herman serves as co-principal of the cello section and 2024 Concerto Winner and will perform the Bruch, Kol Nidrei. Yao is one of the winners of GYO’s inaugural piano competition and will perform the Mendelssohn, Piano Concerto No. 1 in g Minor, Op. 25.
“The theme of the concert is celebrating heroes, which not only surrounds the story of Scheherazade, but also celebrating all of our young students, who are all heroes in their own right,” said Henry Shin, music director and conductor.
Tickets are $18 and may be purchased from the Alex Theatre box office. Students, children and seniors may purchase tickets for $16 each. The Alex Theatre is located at 216 N. Brand Blvd. For more information, visit alextheatre.org.
