The South Bend Youth Symphony Orchestra, directed by Robert Boardman, will present “Voyage” by John Coriliano, the “Overture from La Forza del Destino” by Giuseppe Verdi, and “Ritual Fire Dance” by Manuel de Falla.  They will also present “Pavane for a Dead Princess” by Maurice Ravel, and selections from “West Side Story” as arranged by Jack Mason.

The South Bend Youth Symphony Orchestras are a collaborative project in the Michiana community with the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts at IU South Bend.  The orchestras were formed in an effort to provide young musicians with an opportunity to rehearse and perform in a larger ensemble.  Carrie Cimildoro-Beem serves as the executive director of this organization.
