EYSO’s 46th Season: Flipped!

Our 2021-22 season theme is Flipped, where students will explore how a shift in perspective can make a world of difference in music and life. Each of EYSO’s eight large ensembles will present concerts over the year while engaging with EYSO’s unique approach to educating the “whole musician.” Join us for 2:30, 4:30 and 7 p.m. concerts on November 14, March 13 and May 8.
