The Space Coast Symphony YOUTH Orchestra will present a fall concert for the community, Dreams & Fancies, with a performance by all three of its musical groups Sunday, November 3, at 4:00 PM at the Scott Center for the Performing Arts at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, 5625 Holy Trinity Drive in Suntree, 32940.
The 100+ SCSYO members are divided into three performing groups, to accommodate various ages and experience levels. Dreams & Fancies will feature the Academy Orchestra’s beginning string players under the direction of Rebecca Simons, intermediate players of the Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Samantha Felber, and advanced Philharmonic Orchestra students under the direction of Maestro Mark Nelson. Featured on the concert is “Nightrider” by the Academy Orchestra, its mysterious tonality and driving rhythms by Richard Meyer exciting for young players. The Symphony Orchestra players will perform “Festive Intrada” by Scott Watson, a wonderful introduction to the classical symphony style. The advanced players of the Philharmonic Orchestra will perform the final movement of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2, the “Little Russian.” The Philharmonic students will also perform Mendelssohn’s “Hebrides Overture,” the concert overture and tone poem inspired by the composer’s journey to to Fingal’s Cave in Scotland. Dreams & Fancies is a free concert with no ticket required. An outreach of the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra, the youth orchestra for youth aged eight to 18 years rehearses weekly in preparation for performances of classical symphonic masterworks.
