Gemini Youth Orchestras help nurture young musicians

Ever want to just make music? Well, the Gemini Youth Orchestras is the place to be! Gemini is a music program for young, aspiring musicians to grow in their careers. It includes five groups for which they can sign up, based on their interests and experience: Gemini Repertory Orchestra, Gemini String Orchestra, Gemini Concert Winds, Gemini Philharmonia and Gemini Youth Symphony.

At Gemini Youth Orchestras, we play an exciting variety of pieces, ranging from contemporary to operas and challenging concertos. Personally, I participate in Gemini Philharmonia, which includes strings, woodwinds and a few brass instruments with percussion. This year, the orchestras performed three concerts -- one at Lincoln Center in Manhattan!
