Free Christian provides stage for top youth players


The Andover Townsman

---- — People have a chance on March 10 to see some of the area’s finest young musicians give a free concert right here in town.

Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras will present a free community concert on Sunday, March 10 at 3 p.m., at Free Christian Church on Elm Street. The concert will feature members of NMYO’s 14 chamber ensembles performing music by composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, and Stamitz.

Andover residents who will be involved in the performance here are Casey Yi Zhang on flute; James Booth on viola; and Gavin Batsimm, Olinah Hassan, Arman Koul, Vivien Qin, Yazhini Ramesh, Sarah Vrountas and Yanchen Zhan, all on violin.

NMYO Symphony Orchestra musicians, and select members of Intermezzo Orchestra, participate in an eight-week chamber music program in which they are placed into small ensembles and coached by visiting professional musicians. NMYO chamber musicians perform in outreach concerts throughout the region in April as part of NMYO’s community service program, Youth Serving Through Music.
