Young People's Symphony Orchestras Pop Concert, which will be the final regular concert of the 2018-19 season, will feature the final 2019 concerto competition winner, Magali Pelletey, Music Director and Conductor David Ramadanoff and 85 teenage musicians in a program of Dvorak, Saint-Saens, Tchaikovsky, Holst,and popular music of Anderson, Elgar, and Sousa.

Each season, YPSO offers all members who have been in the orchestra for at least one full season the opportunity to enter the Concerto Competition to compete for the opportunity to play a concerto with the orchestra at a regular concert.  Magali Pelletey, age 15, is the fourth and final Concerto Competition winner who will perform on a regular concert this season. She is a sophomore at Oakland Technical High School. She has studied violin for ten years, first with Eleanor Briccetti and with Heghine Boloyan for the past seven years. Magali has played in multiple chamber music groups, including a piano quartet and string quartet coached by Eugene Chukhlov, and is currently in a piano trio working with James Jaffe, Eugene Sor, and Bonnie Hampton.

At the Pops Concert each June, the orchestra also honors its high school seniors with a graduation ceremony. This season, YPSO will recognize 17 high school seniors who in the fall of 2019 will attend outstanding universities and music schools, including Stanford, Duke, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and UC Santa Barbara.

Celebrating his 30th season as Music Director/Conductor, David Ramadanoff conducts 85 YPSO musicians who range in age from 12 to 19, who hail from 33 Bay Area cities in seven counties.

Founded in Berkeley in 1936, YPSO is the oldest youth orchestra in California and the second oldest in the nation. The 2018-19 season is the 82nd 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.
