You won’t want to miss this spectacular event! Call 972-252-2787 to get your tickets. Concerts occur at the Irving Arts Center’s Carpenter Hall.

Victoria Hwang, of Coppell, TX, first picked up the violin in preschool. Now in 9th grade at Coppell High School, she continues to play, developing her musical technique and artistry. Over the years, she has taken part in various orchestras and ensembles. In Florida, she won her first solo violin state title in 2009. After moving to California in 2012, she performed with the Reverie Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Conejo Valley Youth Orchestra, and continued to compete and win multiple competitions in solo, duet, and quartet categories. Following another move to Texas in 2015, she performed with the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra. Now a member of the Lone Star Youth Orchestra, she is one of the winners of the Lone Star Youth Orchestra Concerto Competition. She really enjoys her musical experience under the enthusiastic direction of Maestro Pearce.

Based in Irving, TX, the Lone Star Youth Orchestra is the only tuition-free youth orchestra in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The LSYO consists of middle school and high school students from over fourteen (14) metroplex school districts. These talented youths are given the opportunity to supplement and enhance their music education by learning symphonic literature through high-quality orchestral and ensemble training with the very best in the field. Our organization passionately stands by our belief that quality music education should be available to students of all socioeconomic levels.

The youth orchestra experience is one of the most pivotal pre-college experiences for talented high school instrumentalists. Membership in the Lone Star Youth Orchestra is open to all middle and high school string, woodwind, brass, and percussion players. The LSYO offers rolling auditions throughout the season for any interested student musicians. Additional information regarding auditions can be found at www.lascolinassymphony.org/lsyo or by calling 972-252-4800.

After two years of creative planning, the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra formed the Lone Star Youth Orchestra in 1999. The LSYO is one component of the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra’s many educational initiatives. Under the direction of Robert Carter Austin, the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra has a record of excellent artistic presentation and a strong commitment to music education.

Single tickets are available by phone or at the door. Ticket pricing is $6.50 per student and $13.50 for adults. All seating is general admission. The concert will take place on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, at 7 PM at the Irving Arts Center’s Carpenter Hall.
