Bay Area Youth Orchestra Festival 2011
On Sunday, January 16, San Francisco Classical Voice's video team captured the BAYOF Hope concert and event as it happened. Here is an inside look at the event, which we think captures its raucous energy as well as the amazing self-possession of the very young participants. Also coming is more extended video of each orchestra's performance that day.
Watch excerpts of the performances from each participating orchestra here.

Six youth orchestras, 575 players, six charities, one incredible event: the BAYOF Hope festival returns to Davies Symphony Hall.
