The Youth Orchestra of Bucks County will offer two composition workshops on Sunday, February 21, 2015 at Bucks County Community College, Newtown. The sessions will be available to YOBC students as well as guests from the community. The workshops are free and open to students in high school or middle school.
All interested students must register on the YOBC website. Space is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
YOBC’s Play-In is for young musicians in grades 5–8 who play brass, wind, or percussion instruments. Community guests will join the 35-member Intermediate Division Wind Symphony for an afternoon of music, friends, and fun. This event is free of charge, however guests must register on the YOBC website. Music will be sent out around February 1 to give students a chance to practice it. We do not expect it to be perfect, but it should be prepared. Music will be distributed by email to registered students. Space is limited and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. The open rehearsal is from 5:00–6:30 pm at Bucks County Community College, Newtown.

Eric attended a spring 2013 solo performance by Mr. Kim at the Hilltown Baptist Church in Chalfont. After the performance, waiting in line for an autograph, Eric was struck by how friendly he seemed, and asked Mr. Kim if he would consider performing with YOBC. They exchanged e-mails and soon YOBC executive director, Colleen Sweetsir, received a message from Mr. Kim proposing the special guest appearance and working out the details.
