The Young People's Orchestra had the unique privilege of performing on stage side-by-side with the professional musicians of the OSFL in concert on March 5, 2023 at 4:00 PM. This performance was part of the Clara Schumann Festival held at the Corning Museum of Glass. The 2022 Hertzog Concerto Competition winner, Isabel Metz, performed Mendelssohn's brilliant Violin Concerto in E Minor.
The Young People's Orchestra performed on December 3, 2022 in the Clemens Center lobby right before the OSFL's Holiday Concert. It was a lovely performance with the string students demonstrating their talent with holiday cheer.
The group also performed at Bethany Village in Horseheads on December 18, 2022 to share the music with the senior residents.
