2018 PYPO Music Festival
Saturday, February 24, 2018
Strings – Woodwinds – Brass – Percussion
The PYPO Music Festival is an annual event where we invite young musicians from all over the Tri-State area to join us in making music for the day. In 2017, the PYPO staff had the pleasure of working with over 200 musicians during the Festival, and we hope to increase that for 2018 by offering four distinct ensembles:
- Overture Level Strings (string players with 2-3 years of experience)
- Overture Level Band (woodwind, brass, percussion players with 2-3 years of experience)
- Prelude Level Strings (string players with 4+ years of experience)
- Prelude Level Band (woodwind, brass, percussion players with 2-3 years of experience)
The Festival visiting musicians will join the students in Overture Strings, Prelude Strings, and Prelude Band for one day and work together with the staff of the Pittsburgh Youth Philharmonic Orchestra to prepare a concert which will take place the same day. The concert is free and open to the public.
There is a $40 registration fee that will cover the cost of the Festival, lunch and a PYPO Festival T-shirt.
