Joining the NTSO for Movie Magic: The Westerns is the Dallas Asian American Youth Orchestra, a non-profit youth orchestra open to all students in the North Texas area. Together, the NTSO and DAAYO will celebrate the sights and sounds of the cinematic old west, featuring many young rootin' tootin' cowpokes from the Dallas Asian-American Youth Orchestra:
> Rossini, William Tell Overture
> Copland, Down a Country Lane
> The Magnificent Seven (arr. Phillipe)
> Traditional (arr. Bullock), Shenandoah
> Grofe (arr. Gold), On the Trail from The Grand Canyon Suite

While DAAYO plays mostly traditional classical music, the orchestra is known for highlighting music of Asian composers. Their organization features four ensembles and a chamber music program. NTSO players lead two DAAYO ensembles: concertmaster Thomas Keeley and principal second violinist Erin M. Fox. The NTSO is excited to have the Young Musicians Orchestra, under the direction of Ms. Fox, playing this concert side-by-side with the players of the NTSO.
The Westerns concert features special ticketing for youth: one youth (12 and under) ticket free with each adult ticket purchased. The youth ticket can be picked up at Will Call by presenting a purchased regularly priced ticket.
