The program included Rossini’s “Overture” from William Tell, Grieg’s “Morning Song” from Peer Gynt, and Copland’s “Hoe-Down” from Rodeo.  The highlight of the program was Kleinsinger’s Tubby the Tuba, with Principal Tuba Neil Konouchi.  CSOYO concerto competition winner, Juliette Blais, also performed Saint-Saën’s Cello Concerto.

6,981 students and teachers from 72 schools and large home-school groups attended one of six performances.
