On Monday, May 6, 2019 at 7 PM at the Maumee High School Performing Arts Center, the Toledo Symphony Youth Orchestras (TSYO) will conclude their 2018-2019 performance season with their annual Pops Concert.

The TSYO Concert Strings will open the program with A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman, The Final Countdown, Palladio, and Triumph. Triumph is a composition written by former TSYO member and Toledo Symphony intern, Armond Wimberly. Wimberly will appear as a guest conductor, alongside conductor Kathleen Schnerer and TSYO Concert Strings conductor, Betsy Cranston.

“It is truly a joy to be able to return to Toledo to rehearse and conduct the youth orchestra that I emerged from as they perform my composition, ‘Triumph,’” says Wimberly. “It really feels like I have done a total revolution—coming back to where I began, but with more worldly experience and knowledge. As artists, I think we should all strive to give back to our communities through artistic service. It is this type of work that really makes an imprint and preserves our culture. I am looking forward to conducting the Concert Strings for this glorious occasion!”

The TSYO currently includes three orchestras: the Philharmonic, Symphonic, and Concert Strings that perform 4 concerts per season. The TSYO is able to serve students ages 8-18 from over 50 area schools. We aim to find a place in the orchestra where each student will be challenged to grow musically with skill-appropriate repertoire.
