The Sinfonia Youth Orchestra will present its annual free spring concert, “Spring Concert: A Concert of Beginnings and Endings,” on Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m. at Destin High School.

  • The concert will showcase the talent of the area’s finest young musicians and feature performances by the Beginning Strings, Sinfonietta Strings, Intermediate Strings, the Chamber Group, and the Sinfonia Youth Orchestra.

The family-friendly event will offer a diverse selection of music, ranging from familiar songs and folk tunes to overtures for operas and marches. The concert will highlight the growth and achievements of the Sinfonia Youth Orchestra’s music education programs over the past year.

“Our music education programs have seen exponential growth in the last year. At the same time, our musicians have achieved a higher level of artistry than they ever have before. Anyone who attends is in for a musical treat,” said Sinfonia Youth Orchestra music director Margaret Gordon.

In addition to the musical performances, the concert will include a salute to the graduating high school seniors and the presentation of the 2024 Grace Fulcher Memorial Scholarship.

  • “The leadership from our seniors has allowed our ensemble to grow in incredible ways and I am looking forward to recognizing them for their efforts and commitment,” Gordon said.

Sinfonia Gulf Coast Music & Artistic Director Demetrius Fuller emphasized the importance of education in the organization’s mission.

“Education is the centerpiece of Sinfonia. It was founded in 2005 not only for its entertainment value, but for the fact that Northwest Florida needed an organization that could be the proponent for arts education in schools, specifically music education,” Fuller said. “The Sinfonia Youth Orchestra program is a wonderful catalyst for local young musicians to expand their musical talents, but it would not be a full experience without an audience, so we hope everyone will come out to and support our youth orchestras.”
