EYSO Awarded "Programming of the Year"

We are proud to announce that the EYSO has received the Programming of the Year award from the Illinois Council of Orchestras, in recognition of the innovative musical presentations in our 2013-14 Bardology season, which explored music influenced by William Shakespeare. The ICO has recognized the EYSO with four awards in the past, including Youth Orchestra of the Year (2000 and 2007), Conductor of the Year (Artistic Director Randal Swiggum, 2008), and Programming of the Year (2005), an honor rarely given to a youth music program.

 

Music Educator of the Year: Lynne Green

At our March Soirees Musicales concerts, we were thrilled to honor EYSO's 2015 Music Educator of the Year: Lynne Green, founder of the Lynne Green School of Flute and longtime band director at St. Patrick Catholic School in St. Charles. "For those of us who love music and are privileged to teach it to young people, either in schools or private studios, we can't imagine a better career that what we have," Mrs. Green said, accepting the award. "May we all continue to advocate for the arts in our schools and communites." Read the full announcement here.
