The Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra (GSYO) will fill the stage at Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) on Saturday, April 28 at 3 p.m. for a free concert.
Conducted by Nathaniel Beversluis, resident conductor of Greensboro Symphony, the 60 young musicians will present a variety of classical and modern pieces.
The youth orchestra has toured to Vienna and Salzburg and throughout North Carolina. Peter Zlotnick, education director, said the students gain a lot through touring.
Last fall, GSYO offered performing arts organizations throughout North Carolina the chance to have this group of young people perform. TFAC saw this as an opportunity to benefit two communities at one time.
“We are happy to welcome these young people to Tryon. Playing for new audiences benefits the students from Greensboro while giving our families the chance to hear a symphony orchestra in Tryon – something we don’t get every day!” said Beth Child, executive director of TFAC.
There is no charge for this performance. Seating is general admission.  Please call the Tryon Fine Arts Center for more information at 828-859-8322 or visit www.tryonarts.org.
Tryon Fine Arts Center, located on Melrose Avenue in the Town of Tryon, has been a center for participation in the visual and performing arts for more than 43 years.
