“CYSO” has become an umbrella term for an organization that not only offers several orchestra programs (including the namesake and most advanced “Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra”), but chamber ensembles and an orchestra, too.  On this program we’ll hear the chamber orchestra in music by local composer Brian Baxter, part of the percussion concerto by Joseph Schwantner performed by CYSO concerto competition winner Isaac Stevenson and the Symphony No. 1 by Samuel Barber.

Program: Conducted by CYSO Music Director Allen Tinkham

Brian Baxter (b. 1985):  Symphony in Movement

Joseph Schwantner (b. 1943):  Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra, movement 1
Isaac Stevenson, percussion

Samuel Barber (1910 – 1981):  Symphony No. 1, Op. 9 (In One Movement)
