Ending the Season on a High Note
The last month of the season is always a busy time at CYSO. Over the past few weeks, we’ve welcomed countless audience members to some of our spring performances, including 1100 CPS third grades at the Philharmonic Orchestra Education Concert and nearly 1000 audience members at the Debut Orchestra/Preparatory Strings and Concert Orchestra/Accelerando Strings spring performances, all at Studebaker Theater. Jazz Orchestra also recently finished out their season with a strong performance at Jazz Showcase.
Thanks to all the audience members who have come out to support CYSO students over the past few weeks! Here are a few of our favorite photos from some of these end-of-the-season concerts:
