QUINCY — The Quincy Area Youth Orchestra will present its spring concert at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 26 at Baldwin School, 30th and Maine.

Under the direction of Rich Cangro, the orchestra will perform bright and colorful selections like “Festique” by M.L. Daniels, “Genesis” by Rossano Galante, “Marche Militaire Francaise from Algerian Suite” by Camille Saint-Saëns, and “Danse Négre from African Suite” by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.

Admission to the concert is free with donations encouraged.

The 2022-23 QAYO comprises 35 talented local musicians. Each of the members was selected for the orchestra based on auditions held in October. The student musicians come together weekly for rehearsals. Their first performance was on Feb. 19 when they joined the Quincy Symphony Orchestra side-by-side for William Camphouse’s “Brilliance.” The Illinois composer wrote this piece to honor the Quincy Symphony Orchestra Association’s 75th anniversary.
