We’re excited to welcome Pacific Symphony Santiago Strings (PSSS), Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE) and Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra (PSYO) back to the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall starting Sunday, Nov. 14.
Young artist development has always been an integral part of what we do. After all, Pacific Symphony got its start at California State University, Fullerton in the late 1970s. Led by Music Directors Irene Kroesen, Dr. Gregory X. Whitmore and Dr. Jacob Sustaita, respectively, each group supports young musicians in unique ways:
- PSSS provides string musicians in grades 6 – 9 with quality string training and performance instruction.
- PSYWE provides wind and percussion musicians in grades 8 – 12 the opportunity to refine their skills in an innovative, and technically advanced wind symphony environment.
- PSYO provides 100+ string, wind and percussion musicians in grades 9 – 12 with intense orchestral training.
Starting Sunday, they’ll be kicking off the season with three back-to-back concerts. Admission is free, but tickets are required. Seating is general admission. To learn more, please use the links below.
- Sunday, Nov. 14 – PSSS: Get Up and Move!
- Monday, Nov. 15 – PSYWE: Rise & Shine!
- Tuesday, Nov. 16 – PSYO Fall Concert
