Youth Symphony concert June 2012

Peninsula Symphony Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles Harbor College

The PSYO-LAHC is sponsored jointly by the Peninsula Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Harbor College (offered as a Harbor College Extended Education course titled "Harbor College Youth Orchestra"). It provides the opportunity for young musicians to play in a high-caliber ensemble. The group rehearses and performs a generous assortment of musical material. Students are challenged to master diverse styles from classical to jazz to the bold and the new. The ensemble is open to young musicians through age 18 who play an orchestral instrument.

Richard Babcock has been Music Director of the Peninsula Youth Symphony Orchestra since its inception. In addition, he is Music Director of the Peninsula Symphonic Winds, and Director of Orchestras for Chadwick School in Palos Verdes. He holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in composition from the California Institute of the Arts, and a Bachelor of Music degree with emphasis in jazz theory and secondary education at the University of Utah.

Fall 2022: Beginning September 10, 2022 9:00 AM until noon. Membership is open for the duration of the season. New and returning members may be asked to demonstrate their abilities on their instrument by playing a prepared piece, sight reading a simple excerpt of music, and/or playing major scales. This is not a formal audition. It is simply a tool for the Director to use in planning rehearsals and repertoire. New students are allowed to join mid-season.
