Fresh off their immensely successful 25th season which featured their side-by-side performance with the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra of Holst’s “The Planets”, the Evansville Philharmonic Youth Orchestras (EPYO & EPYO II) will present their Fall Concert. Under the direction of conductor Lee Veazey, the EPYO II will perform various selections from Bach, Copland, Schubert, Gliere, and well-recognized “Light Cavalry Overture” by Franz von Suppe. Under the baton of conductor Brian Onderdonk, EPYO will begin the second half of the program with a picturesque program featuring famous classical music used in opera and film. First up will be Verdi’s tumultuous overture from La Forza del Destino, followed by the incredibly gorgeous and evocative “In the Steppes of Central Asia” by Russian composer Alexander Borodin. The program will finish with music from the film score “Lt. Kije” by Sergei Prokofiev, one of the famous composer’s most beloved and best recognized works.
