The Mobile Symphony Youth Orchestra’s (MSYO) season finale will showcase the Gulf Coast’s most talented student musicians on Sunday, April 25, 2:30 p.m., at the Saenger Theatre. The musicians and audience will be socially distanced, and masks are required throughout the performance. To accommodate social distancing on stage, the MSYO will perform as ensembles: strings, winds and French horns, and brass and percussion.
The concert ends with performances by winners of the MSYO Concerto Competition: violinist Christopher Conger, a home-schooled student from Daphne; bassoonist Zachary Howell, a student at Fairhope High School; and French horn player Sofia Keeling, a student at Spanish Fort High School. Each winner will perform a movement from a classical concerto, accompanied by an ensemble of professional and student musicians.
Admission is $10 for students, $20 for adults when purchased in advance or $25 at the door. Tickets and more about the MSYO can be found at www.mobilesymphony.org or call the Mobile Symphony at 251-432-2010.
