IPSWICH — Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras will present a chamber music concert on Sunday, March 3, at 3 p.m. at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, 37 Main St., Rockport.
“Our chamber music concert features all of NMYO’s symphony orchestra and select flute choir musicians,” Music Director Gerry Dolan said. “This year, we also feature a saxophone quartet, piano quintet, and a piece for harp and woodwinds.”
The concert is the culmination of an eight-week rehearsal period during which each of the small string, woodwind, flute, brass, saxophone and percussion ensembles rehearse with visiting professional musicians. These 13 small ensembles will perform music by both classical and modern composers, including Ed Argenziano, Gustav Holst, Dmitri Shostakovich and William Grant Still.
The following musicians from Greater Newburyport will be playing in the concert:
Newburyport: Sam Parr
Salisbury: Noah Alcaraz
Rowley: Joshua Burrell and Madelyn Graves
West Newbury: Evan Lagueux, Lucas Ting and Sophia Todd
NMYO is committed to making its concerts accessible to all patrons and will make reasonable accommodations when possible.
NMYO provides youth musicians with ensemble training and opportunities for cognitive, social, and personal growth through musical performance and community service.
Musicians are now being added for the second semester. Rehearsals are held weekly just off Interstate 95 and Route 1 in Topsfield/Boxford. For more information, visit nmyo.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Reach them by phone at 978-309-9833.
