More violins - Better Tomorrows

GYO In the News

November 10, 2017 - Luminaries



The Gifford Youth Orchestra’s inaugural "Getting to know the Stars of GYO" was wildly successful, as the "stars" were able to mingle with the VIPs and the VIPs were able to talk to the "stars," and even get tips on playing the violin.

All this mingling took place Oct. 27 at the Grand Harbor Beach Club on State Road A1A.

Some of the VIPs included Lawrence and Corrine Trapp, Indian River County Commissioner Joe Flescher and his wife, Rosemary, Oculina Bank CEO Chris Russell, and Roman and Joan Ortega-Cowan.

During the evening, the GYO "stars" would bring the VIPs to orchestra di rector D r. Crystal Bujol, who would talk about the orchestra, its programs and its expansion into choir and piano, all while Gretchen Cover played background music with her lyrical harp.

The Grand Harbor Beach Club chef also did a spectacular job.

On Nov. 4, the GYO held its 14th annual concert at the Gifford Community Center and played to a packed house.

Throughout the program, Bujol read biographies on the young musicians performing. All in all, there were 12 orchestra pieces, one piano solo, two choral pieces with one choral solo.
