Attention San Diego Area HomeschoolersAre you interested in adding music appreciation to your curriculum? If so, then consider attending a classical music concert, sponsored by the San Diego Civic Youth Orchestra. These concerts are held two or three times per year in the north county area. Often at the Brubeck Theater of Palomar College, these concerts showcase a variety of youth orchestras.The San Diego Civic Youth Orchestra has a “stair-step” approach to music instruction. There are five orchestras, ranging from the Primary level, all of the way up to the Symphony level. Ages range from about 6 or 7 years old, up through senior in high school. As students progress up through the levels, the music gets more and more difficult. The Symphony level plays pieces that are often considered at the college or professional level.Concerts for Winter 2006The San Diego Civic Youth Orchestra’s Symphony Orchestra (5th and highest level) will perform two winter/Christmas concerts. Dates are Saturday, December 2 at 8pm, and Sunday, December 3, at 2pm at the Howard Brubeck Theater of Palomar College. Admission is $12 General; $10 seniors; $8 students. Arrive early for good seating.Additionally, four levels of San Diego Civic Youth Orchestra will perform at the Carlsbad High School on Saturday, December 9, 2006 at 1 p.m. Admission is $5.00 per person. Levels performing are Primary Orchestra through Symphonic Orchestra (1st level through 4th level).All levels of the youth orchestras have been rehearsing all semester for these concerts!Additional ConcertsThis December presents a unique opportunity to watch a live ballet being danced to live music!
