Fairbanks Youth Orchestras
2014-15 SeasonThe Fairbanks Youth Symphony performed an arrangement of music from Les Miserables for this year's Friendship Day concert, and you can see a beautiful montage video here created by Kade Mendelowitz: FYS Friendship Day.
Our Spring Concert was May 17 at 2 PM at the Davis Concert Hall and included a world premiere of "The Great Snow Day", a work by Fairbanks' own Reuben Spencer. We received a nice write up about the concert by the News Miner: 2014 Young Musicians Do Interior Alaska Proud.
The Fairbanks Youth Orchestras was started by Gordon Wright and Inga-Lisa Wright in 1970 with 18 string players.
