On Tuesday, June 11th, students from YONA-Sistema and Kipohtakaw-YONA shared the stage with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra.
In this year's concert, the La Bruyère orchestra had the chance to perform “Chan Chan”, a cuban feature piece all by themselves on the Winspear stage. Throughout the rest of the concert, some of our La Bruyère orchestra students also had the opportunity to sit side-by-side with Edmonton Symphony Orchestra musicians sharing the same stand!
Shout out to our lead teaching artist Ms. Lauren, whom stood on stage to conduct the full orchestra and choir with the piece “Somewhere”.
Check out some of the photos taken backstage throughout the evening. All our students did such a fantastic job!
Stay tuned for more Road to Joy pictures as well as year end concert photos to follow!
