On 26 March the orchestra gave a stirring concert to a packed audience of parents and supporters. You can see below video clips of the pieces they played. Each of them had its own challenges, but highlights for us were the Shostakovich and Mambo. The young players rose to the challenge splendidly. We all look forward to the next sessions.
We do hope that all our players enjoyed the return of DGYO to more normal activities in the 2021-22 season. We're all going to have a well earned break now until the autumn. However we're already starting to plan for next season and we thought it would be good to let you know what we hope will happen in 2022-23.
Dumfries and Galloway Youth Orchestra relies on the generosity of supporters to enable it to continue to operate. Without such generosity DGYO would be unable to continue which would be a great loss for the young players who get such enjoyment from it. Not only that but a musical education, such as DGYO helps to provide, develops and enhances so many of the attributes that everyone needs in life such as listening skills, teamwork, analytical skills, creativity and communication.
