Empire State Youth Orchestra invited to perform in China and South Korea

Empire State Youth Orchestra invited to perform in China and South Korea

The 90 musicians comprising the Empire State Orchestra have been invited to perform at the 2012 World Expo and at other locations in China and South Korea. Of particular note will be the orchestra's visit to and performance on Sorok Island where elderly Hansen's disease (leprosy) patients reside.  These people had had no exposure to western music until members of the London Philharmonic performed for them last year in what was called a "transformative experience" for both musicians and residents.

You may view a brief video presentation about ESYO’s participation in the 2012 World Expo and listen to the musicians perform at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8zQrL3M9q8

As a regional organization, ESYO attracts students from over 75 public and private schools throughout eastern New York State and western New England. Returning and potential members must pass a competitive audition for their positions.  ESYO students range in grade level from 4th through 12th.
