Youth Orchestra Day Performance
National Orchestral Institute and Festival
Joining the National Orchestral Institute is an aspirational achievement for young performers across the nation and here in our community. In launching Youth Orchestra Day at the National Orchestral Institute + Festival, top musicians from the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestras, DC Youth Orchestra Program, and the McLean Youth Orchestra join with members of NOI for a day of uplifting mentorship through side-by-side rehearsals and sectionals led by NOI members and guest conductors.
Conductors Kristofer Sanz (Music Director, Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra), John Devlin (Music Director, McLean Youth Orchestra), and Mariano Vales (Music Director, DC Youth Orchestra Program) rehearse a combined student ensemble culminating in a festive showcase in the Dekelboum Concert Hall.
