Local Musicians to Play at Scottsdale Philharmonic Youth Orchestra Concerts
"The Scottsdale Philharmonic Youth Orchestra (SPYO) is doing amazing things with its Music Director Dr. Daniel Atwood," Partridge says. Dr. Atwood announced that SPYO concerts will feature appearances of three Phoenix area musicians during its upcoming 2021-2022 season.
The SPYO, under the direction of Dr. Atwood, was started in 2019. "The interest in auditions this year is remarkable,"
"Our Youth Orchestra is for students grade 7 to 12 who want to learn to be great orchestra players," explains Dr. Atwood. "Tuition is very affordable, only $100 a year. We practice Tuesday evenings (6:30 to 8:30 p.m.), and hold our rehearsals and concerts (7 p.m.) at the New Vision Center for Spiritual Living, 18010 N. Tatum Blvd. in Phoenix."
