Letters: CMYO offers inspiration for youth

What is so amazing is they spent their Saturday mornings rehearsing faithfully, working hard to perfect their concert pieces

Once again, I had my dose of music “a la creme “. Last night, May 10, the Chilliwack Metropoliton Youth Orchestra performance was stunning, beautiful and witty at times.

They played light pieces like Postcards from Russia to “big” works of the Beethoven’s symphony no. 5 and Mozart’s symphony no. 40.

These performers are very young and have busy school lives, from elementary to university levels. What is so amazing is they spent their Saturday mornings rehearsing faithfully, working hard to perfect their concert pieces!! I am a huge fan of this orchestra. It’s such a neat thing to see them giving great concerts throughout the years. Their diligent attitude towards music had earned them an efflorescence of elegance and superb craftsmanship.

Congratulations to Maestro Louwersheimer and fellow conductor Mr. David Voth!

While some other kids are spending hours “pressing buttons” in front of some electric devices, you had inspire the youths in your orchestra to create music; giving them rewarding past times to broaden their horizons. Wow!

The CMYO will be collaborating with the CMO to perform another concert called Hollywood in Chilliwack, May 24, 7:30 pm at the Chilliwack Cultural Concert. Come and listen. You won’t be disappointed!
