The talented members of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra (PYO) will perform on Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 3 p.m. Conducted by Maestro Louis Scaglione, President and Music Director of the PYO organization, it will take place in Verizon Hall at the Kimmel Center, 300 S. Broad Street in Philadelphia. The most advanced ensemble of the organization, musicians of PYO, ages 14–21, will perform Shostakovich’s Symphony No. I; Prokofiev’s Second Suite from Romeo and Juliet, and Stravinsky’s Suite from The Firebird.

This is the second major concert of the year and the growth of the students is apparent. Maestro Louis Scaglione said, “The members of PYO are passionate about their music making. It is not only a pleasure working with them, but it is very rewarding to observe their growth and conduct them as they perform.”
