• The Flagler Youth Orchestra performs its first concert of the 2009-10 season on Monday, December 7, at 7 p.m. at the Flagler Auditorium in Palm Coast. Conductor Jonathan May will lead three orchestras with more than 275 string musicians — a cross-section of public, private and homeschooled students. The program will feature music by Edvard Grieg, Georg Telemann and much more.

    Tickets are available at the Flagler Auditorium box office or by calling (386) 437-7547. Adult tickets are $5.00. Children 17 and under get in free. Proceeds help underwrite instrument scholarships and repairs, 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.
