Diane Ballweg Winterfest Concerts:
Youth Orchestra

March 19, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5.00 – $10.00

You are invited to attend the 2022 Diane Ballweg Winterfest Concert Series: Youth Orchestra Concert.

The concert will be preceded by the award presentation ceremony for the 2021 Rabin Youth Arts Awardee, Dennis McKinley. The ceremony was scheduled to take place in Spring  2021, but was postponed due to COVID-19 guidelines that restricted the size of gatherings. To make up for this delay, WYSO chose to present the award in front of one of the biggest and most gracious audiences we could muster: families, fans, and members of WYSO’s Youth Orchestra. Diane Ballweg will present the award at 7:00 pm just prior to the Youth Orchestra Concert.
