    Conductor Maggie Snively’s Overture Orchestra, Flagler Auditorium, 2016.

    The Flagler Youth Orchestra performs its first concert of the 2016-17 season on Wednesday, November 16th, at 7 p.m. at the Flagler Auditorium in Palm Coast. Conductor Sue Cryan and fellow associate conductors of the FYO will lead five orchestras with more than 375 string musicians — a cross-section of public, private and homeschooled students. The element-themed program will feature music by Stravinsky, Handel and much more.

    Tickets are available at the Flagler Auditorium box office or by calling (386) 437-7547. Adult tickets are $6.00 with $1 from each ticket going to the Auditorium’s Arts in Education Fund. Children 17 and under are $1. The orchestra’s proceeds help underwrite instrument scholarships and repairs, teaching staff and concert productions. The Flagler Youth Orchestra is made possible by the Flagler County School District, with the support of the Friends of the Youth Orchestra, whose sole mission is to provide free music education after school to all Flagler children with a desire to play an instrument.
