Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras Announces Free Spring Concert

Becky Mack, Young Peoples Orchestra 2021-22 Concerto Competition Winner, will play an excerpt from Strauss's “Oboe Concerto”.

Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras has announced its spring concert, Brand New Way, which will take place on Sat., May 28, at Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts. The program features Sibelius's "Suite for Violin" with Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra member Irene Cheng and "Lift Every Voice and Sing" with vocalists Dr. Zuly Inirio and Anita Levels from UniSound's Black Teaching Artist-in-Residence program.

Becky Mack, Young Peoples Orchestra 2021-22 Concerto Competition Winner, will play an excerpt from Strauss's "Oboe Concerto". Composer and former TRYPO member Hannah Ishizaki will conduct the premiere of "Miniatures," a string ensemble piece commissioned by TRYPO.

The concert will end with all of TRYPO's ensembles performing Ottorino Respighi's "Pines of the Appian Way" on one stage. This will be the final chance to hear them play together before 112 of TRYPO's young musicians travel to New York City to perform at Carnegie Hall this June.

"The title Brand New Way is a play on Respighi's "Appian Way," as well as a call-back to Brand New Day, the title and theme of our January 2022 concert, which was our first concert with a live audience since the start of the pandemic," says Rachel Howard, TRYPO's manager of institutional advancement. "The deeper meaning is that we've had to find a 'brand new way' of accomplishing everything we do over the past two years, and we're proud of the ways we've been able to work together to make it happen!"
