    The Los Angeles Philharmonic presents Youth Orchestra Festival Day at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., featuring the Renaissance Arts Academy Orchestra, Korean American Youth Symphony, and Santa Monica High School Orchestra. Each youth orchestra will perform a 45-minute set. Tickets are free and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Patrons can pick up tickets at the check-in table on Grand Avenue in front of Walt Disney Concert Hall 60 minutes prior to each orchestra's performance.

    T he Renaissance Arts Academy Orchestra will perform a program of Mozart, Holst and Bizet; the Korean American Youth Symphony will perform a program of Tchaikovsky, Saint-Saëns and Dvo?ák; the Santa Monica High School Orchestra will perform a program of Bernstein and Tchaikovsky.

    These youth orchestras, in addition to three others, actively participate in the Youth Orchestra Partners Program, a two-year partnership with the Los Angeles Philharmonic that affords Los Angeles-based youth orchestras coaching sessions and master classes with LA Phil musicians, concert tickets to WDCH and the Hollywood Bowl, and the opportunity to perform on the stage of Walt Disney Concert Hall. The first concert of this kind took place at Walt Disney Concert Hall in the fall of 2007 as a part of the LA Phil’s International Youth Orchestra Festival. Next year’s festival will feature music from the other active Youth Orchestra Partners: Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra, Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra, and Los Angeles Music and Art School.
