The Pops Concert, which will be the final concert of the 2016-17 season, will feature Music Director and Conductor David Ramadanoff and 96 young musicians in a program of musical highlights from the season and popular music of Anderson, Strauss Jr., and Sousa.
Each season, as part of the Pops Concert, the orchestra also honors its high school seniors with a graduation ceremony. This year, YPSO will recognize 30 high school seniors who will all attend outstanding four-year universities, including Yale University, Rice University, University of Michigan, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and San Francisco State University.
Celebrating his 28th season as Music Director/Conductor, David Ramadanoff conducts 96 YPSO young musicians who range in age from 12 to 18, represent 38 schools, and hail from 32 Bay Area cities in eight counties.
Founded in Berkeley in 1936, YPSO is the oldest youth orchestra in California and the second oldest in the nation. The 2016-17 season is the 80th season since violinist and conductor Jessica Marcelli founded YSPO at the suggestion of Clarabelle Bell, an amateur harpist and Berkeley resident, who got the idea after hearing a youth orchestra on a trip to Portland, Oregon.
