International Youth Concert: Musicians from U.S. and France to perform
FLINT — Flint Youth Symphony Orchestra (FYSO) will be joined on stage by their special guests, the Courbevoie Youth Symphony of Paris, France, for an evening of extraordinary music on April 13, at 7 p.m. at The Whiting auditorium. The two symphonies will perform the national anthems for France and the United States of America, Bacchanale from Samson and Delilah, as well as selections from Phantom of the Opera.
Flint Youth Symphony Orchestra is delighted to have Courbevoie Youth Orchestra as its sister orchestra, a relationship that began in 2012 when FYSO performed in Paris, France. Since then, Courbevoie has visited Flint twice, and FYSO performed in France again in 2016. In addition to sharing a love for music and performance, the members of the two orchestras enjoy learning more about one another’s cultures – FYSO enjoys sightseeing in Paris and tasting exotic French foods like escargot. The Courbevoie Youth Orchestra members state how friendly people are in the Flint area, how beautiful the FSPA and area auditoriums are and the wonderful shopping in the area.
Ticket prices range from $6-$12 and are available online at www.TheFSPA.org/ FYSO-international-festival-concert, or by calling 810-238-1350. – G.G.
