Glendale Youth Orchestra Presents “Scheherazade”at the Alex Theatre

On March 3, 2024, the Glendale Youth Orchestra presents as part of the 35th Anniversary Season Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, a grand symphonic poem featuring various members and sections of the orchestra. Alongside the Rimsky-Korsakov, opening the concert will be John Williams’ Olympic Fanfare and Theme while also featuring two young soloists, Ingrid Herman (17, La Crescenta) and Simon Yao (12, Camarillo). Ingrid serves as co-principal of the cello section and 2024 Concerto Winner and will perform the Bruch, Kol Nidrei. Simon 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” says Henry Shin, music director and conductor.


The GYO is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture.


The GYO is by the California Arts Council through the Creative Youth Development  and Arts and Cultural Organizations General Operating Support Grants.
