We end this season with a concert to thank our donors for all they do in support of AYS. In a concert unlike anything we have done before, a chamber ensemble of AYS musicians will play the full ballet version of Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, in collaboration with a local modern ballet troupe. This performance also includes works by visionary French baroque composer Jean-Philippe Rameau. Celabrate Mother’s day with an afternoon of music from the American Youth Symphony!
