The size of the orchestra is one of the most important parts of a real youth symphony. An orchestra’s number of musicians can determine the difference between a good or a horrible youth orchestra.

- Of music’s place in our lives influential German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” In my life’s experience, however, some music is a kind of mistake. This sentiment was born out of my unfortunate four years as an orchestral cellist in Manlius Pebble Hill’s small, uninspired school orchestra. Fortunately for me, however, a superior artistic experience existed close by. Urged on by a fellow cellist in Manlius Pebble Hill’s orchestra, I decided to audition for the Syracuse Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) one sunny June afternoon in what would be the beginning of a two-year long, artistically satisfying relationship....

- I attended the UF Symphony Orchestra performance where the theme was of 1809. The works of Haydn, Beethoven and Mendelssohn were performed. In my opinion the best piece was Symphony No. 101 in D Major “The Clock” by Joseph Haydn. The opening movement itself was Adagio-Presto.

It allowed me to paint a picture and change it accordingly with the music.... [tags: Symphony Orchestra, performance, art, Haydn,]
