EYSO’s 45th Season: Myths & Legends

Our 2020-21 season is called MYTHS & LEGENDS—and we can’t wait to explore it together. Through our study of incredible orchestral music, we’ll be building and examining connections between music and our wider world, exploring preconceived notions and societal and cultural constructs, and examining our own values and beliefs. We’ll ask the question, how do our myths and legends, both cultural and personal, influence our worldview?
