Members of the Sudbury Youth Orchestra, under the direction of Jamie Arrowsmith, are busy preparing for their spring concert, “Elves, Valves and Vikings,” which will be held at 7 p.m. on April 23 at St. Andrew’s Place, 111 Larch St.

The concert features music inspired by Norse mythology and folk culture, and by well-known Scandinavian composers, which the orchestra will perform during their tour of Iceland in July. 

In addition, guest artist Dr. Geoff Tiller will join the orchestra for a performance of Johann Neruda’s "Concerto for Trumpet."

Orchestra members are excited to once again be preparing for an international performance tour. After performing at the Canada Day celebrations in Barrie, the orchestra will travel to Reykjavik, Iceland, where they will perform at major attractions including the Harpa Concert Hall Center and Perlan, “The Pearl”, one of the country’s most striking buildings.

Please join the orchestra at this concert to support these talented young musicians as they prepare to represent Sudbury on their summer adventure.
