Sinfonietta Fall Classic Concert

NOVEMBER 18, 2017, 7:30 PM
Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Rd., Atherton

The El Camino Youth Symphony Sinfonietta Orchestra, under the baton of Conductor John Eells, kicks off its season on November 18 with the Fall Classic Concert. The centerpiece of the program is the final of Haydn's London Symphonies, and the one to which the particular "London" title was attached, his beloved Symphony No. 104.

Also joining Sinfonietta will be ECYS's own Joey Zhu, performing the first movement of Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor.

Joey Zhu, 16 years old, attends California High School in San Ramon and has studied piano since the age of five. His current teachers are Jed Galant and Olya Katsman; previously he studied with Tamriko Siprashvili. As the winner of the Competition for Young Musicians of Livermore Amador Symphony, he will be performing Rachmaninoff’s 2nd Piano Concerto with them later in February. Joey has won many awards including the Taghioff Award from the Fremont Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition, Marilyn Mindell and CAPMT piano competitions, and U.S. Open music competitions. He has participated in the Junior Bach Festival multiple times and has been selected to perform Bach’s first and second partita suites.

Rounding out the program is Beethoven's Overture to Consecration of the House and Music from Our Town by Aaron Copland.
