The Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra’s Celebration of Music Education Concert on will take place on Sunday, February 10, 2013. The concert will honor an array of music educators throughout Central Florida, who strive to enrich the lives of young musicians. As always, Florida teachers receive complimentary admission to this and all FSYO concerts.
It is important to recognize music educators for several reasons. Studies show that music education is highly beneficial in several ways; from cognitive development to organizational skills that are essential in the workforce. According to a 2006 U.S. Gallup Poll, 94% of respondents believe music is part of a well-rounded education, and that schools should offer instrument music instruction as part of the regular curriculum. By regularly acknowledging the importance of music education, the public can gain insight on how music changes the lives of instructors, performers, and audiences.
The Celebration Concert begins at 3 p.m. at College Park Baptist Church, 1914 Edgewater Drive. Tickets range from $8 to $16, and are available now through The Red Chair Project (www.redchairproject.com), or by calling the FSYO office at 407.999.7800. This concert is part of the Season Subscription Package.
The Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra aims to educate and inspire Central Florida’s top young musicians via programs committed to strengthening musical talents and developing appreciation of the arts through classical music. The FSYO, in its 56th Concert Season, comprises three full orchestras, one string training orchestra and various chamber groups, made up of more than 250 students from eight Central Florida counties, including Orange, Osceola, Lee, Seminole, Brevard, Lake, Highlands and Volusia. Programs are sponsored in part by the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs; the Florida Council on Arts and Culture; Darden Restaurant Foundation; Universal Orlando Foundation; and United Arts of Central Florida. We thank these groups for their generous support. The FSYO is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization. For more information, please visit www.fsyo.org.
