MYS Spring Concert - In Characters of Fire

Metropolitan Youth Symphony presents their Spring Concert - In Characters of Fire at the Portland'5 Newmark Theatre on Sunday, March 6, 2022 at 7:30pm.

  • World premiere of Rhythms in Motion, a work by composer Rohan Srinivasan, a 2021 graduate of Sunset High school who now attends the Juilliard School of Music in New York City.
  • Smoulder, by Andrea Reinkemeyer (b. 1976). This American composer’s work has been described as “clever, funky, jazzy and virtuosic” (Detroit News, Daily Gazette). Dr. Reinkemeyer serves as Associate Professor of Music Composition & Theory at Linfield University, and her piece Smoulder evokes the devastation of forest fires and other ominous signs of climate change. 
  • Symphony No.1, Afro-American, by William Grant Still (1895 - 1978). Written in 1930, this was the first symphony by a Black composer to be performed by a major orchestra — the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in 1931. The symphony boldly combines the conventions of jazz, blues and spirituals with the classic tradition. 
  • A performance by MYS’ Concerto Competition winner.
