California Adventures

YLHS Orchestras

Monday, December 8

This year, the YLHS instrumental groups make a trip out to California Adventures. The YLHS Band will be performing at California Adventures on Friday, and the YLHS Orchestras will combine to perform together on Monday. While the YLHS Orchestras only did a clinic at Disneyland last year, the YLHS Band was a part of the parade last spring. All the students are invited to a day in the theme park, while also being a part of the entertainment that will happen on stage during the day. The music groups are selected through an application process.


Winter Holiday Concert

YLHS Band, YLHS String Orchestra, YLHS Sinfonia Orchestra

Tuesday, December 16, 6:30 pm

Unique to this Holiday Concert, the YLHS instrumental groups will combine to put on a night full of music together. Usually, both groups participate in other concerts focusing on their instruments. String players will perform in concerts with other string players, while the Band marches in field shows and concerts with other band groups. This holiday special will feature both orchestras, the whole Concert Band, Jazz I, Jazz II, and other smaller band ensembles. The band will be hosting raffles as a part of their fundraiser as well. Each group will be able to play several pieces, alternating between the different groups. Alumni members are also invited to come back and play their instruments with the groups. It’s truly a holiday spectacular not to miss!
