Please join us in celebrating the inaugural performance "Breaking New Ground," of New York Youth Symphony's newest program, Crescendo at Kaufman Music Center's Merkin Hall.  Launched at the start of the 2023/2024 season, Crescendo is designed for New York City string players aged 10 to 18. Led by Music Director Tanatchaya (Tanya) Chanphanitpornkit, this free program gives young New York City musicians a voice and a chance to expand their musical education through ensemble training and performances.  Students study and prepare music by historically underrepresented composers, including women, members of the LGBTQIA community, and people of color – opening the minds of these musicians making a more inclusive and thoughtful repertoire – as well as standard works from the classical canon. This concert program will feature works from Sibelius, Bologne Chevalier de Saint-Georges, Holst, Newbold, Elgar, and Mendelssohn.
