On Sunday, July 19, The City of Belfast Youth Orchestra (CBYO) will perform at Morgan Park Summer Music Festival. The concert, which is free to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in Morgan Park.
Founded in 1955, CBYO was formed to bring together young musicians to play classical music during troubled times in the city’s history. One of the founding members was the renowned flutist, Sir James Galway. Today, CBYO is regarded as among the finest youth orchestras in the U.K., Ireland and Europe and has performed in many Irish and U.K. concert halls. The appearance at Morgan Park, under the baton of Paul McBride, is an event of the orchestra’s 60th anniversary tour of the U.S. during which they are performing programs of the light classical repertory mixed with Irish favorites.
The City of Belfast Youth Orchestra concert is underwritten by the David and Sondra Mack Foundation.
