Summer Orchestra Opportunity
WSCYVOGCA Youth Symphony
The cheekily titled WSCYVOGCA (West Suburban Community Youth Volunteer Orchestra of the Greater Chicagoland Area) was originally created by River Makinney and Marina Akamatsu to perform the Koussevitzky Double Bass Concerto with Makinney as the soloist in a safe, outdoor environment during the initial stages of the pandemic. What resulted was a fantastic youth symphony and a live-streamed concert. We don’t want to stop there! The symphony is creating a second season, and we need wonderful musicians to perform Dvorak Symphony no. 9. We are in need of all instruments, but especially winds and brass. Please complete this interest form and we’ll be in touch with you soon! Follow us online @wscyvogca on Instagram!
