Fairbanks Youth Orchestras
Our Spring Concert will be May 17 at 2 PM at the Davis Concert Hall on the UAF campus, and will feature the hard work done by our three orchestras over the semester. The Youth Symphony portion of the concert will include a world premiere of "The Great Snow Day", a work by Fairbanks' own Reubin Spencer.
The Fairbanks Youth Orchestras was started by Gordon Wright and Inga-Lisa Wright in 1970 with 18 string players.
