It is the goal of the LSYO program to deliver an intensive and high caliber performance experience for our musicians. However, with the unique restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 virus, this has created the necessity for the LSYO to adapt to the restrictions that will maintain a safe and healthy environment for all of our young musicians.
With this in mind, the start of the season will revolve around a Kaleidoscope theme of major works every 4-8 weeks that is further supplemented with small ensemble assignments for students. Students will rehearse in person AND virtually for Concert and Symphony, and In-person for Preludes. All In-person rehearsals will also be connected through zoom for those students uncomfortable with in person. In the event in-person rehearsals become impossible, LSYO will make the decision to move all rehearsals to a virtual format until it is safe to return to in-person.
LSYO is taking strong measures to ensure the safety of our members. Masks, instrument bags for winds and brass, temp checks, and frequent hand sanitizing and washing will be enforced.
