Pop Goes the YPSO

Young People's Symphony Orchestra

Date: Sun June 7, 2009 2:00pm

The pops concerts are coming! The pops concerts are coming! First up, a wide-ranging program from the Young People’s Symphony Orchestra that covers all the bases: Berlioz’ Roman Carnival Overture, Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite, Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, selections from John Williams’ score for Star Wars, a couple of Leroy Anderson pieces, and Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever.

It’s still technically spring, but it’s not too soon to, like the concert title suggests, say "Hats Off" to summer and join the fun. David Ramanadoff is music director of the YPSO, California's oldest youth orchestra and the second oldest youth orchestra in the U.S.

Michael Zwiebach is the senior editor/ content manager for SFCV. He assigns all articles and content, manages the writing staff and does editing. A member of SFCV from the beginning, Michael holds a Ph.D. in music history from the University of California, Berkeley.
