54th Annual Gala Concert
Sat, Apr 27, 2019 at 5:00 PM

Carlos Izcaray, Music Director / Sarah Chang, Violin DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH: Festive Overture FIL EISLER: World Premiere Violin Concerto, featuring Sarah Chang ANNA CLYNE: This Midnight Hour RICHARD STRAUSS: Der Rosenkavalier

Sarah Chang, widely regarded as one of the greatest violinists of our time, joins AYS for the inaugural Korngold Commission, a project developed and sponsored by Peter Mandell and Sarah Coade Mandell, pairing world-class solo artists with critically acclaimed film composers. The composer in this case is Fil Eisler (aka iZLER), a BMI and SXSW award-winner, best known for scoring hit television series Empire and Revenge. Along with crowd-pleasing offerings from Shostakovich and Strauss, the program also features This Midnight Hour by Anna Clyne, whose work has been described by the New York Times as “virtuosic,” “inventive,” and “dreamlike.”

7:00P VIP Dinner

After the concert, AYS friends, orchestra members, and guest artists celebrate the continuing success of the American Youth Symphony at the 54th Annual Gala Dinner, our biggest fundraising event of the season. Join AYS in supporting the future of classical music at a sumptuous dinner under the stars! Concert & Dinner packages start at $500.
