Fairbanks Youth Orchestras
Our Spring Concert was May 17 at 2 PM at the Davis Concert Hall and included a world premiere of "The Great Snow Day", a work by Fairbanks' own Reuben Spencer. We received a nice write up about the concert by the News Miner: 2014 Young Musicians Do Interior Alaska Proud.
Auditions will be held on September 5 and 7, 2014 at the UAF music building, on campus. Signups for audition slots will be online, and start August 1.
The Fairbanks Youth Orchestras was started by Gordon Wright and Inga-Lisa Wright in 1970 with 18 string players.
