Youth and Exuberance Concert Bellingen Youth Orchestra

Presented by Camp Creative

‘Abounding in vitality; extremely joyful and vigorous’ – the definition of exuberance so applicable to the  Bellingen Youth Orchestra. The orchestra, under the baton of Ann Phelan, is preparing a wonderful program especially for the Festival and will be joined by the BYO String School for some works. 

The  Bellingen Youth Orchestra String School (BYOSS), was formed in early 2018, to advance promising and committed young players who are preparing to enter the Bellingen Youth Orchestra. 

The  Acacia Quartet is well known to the Bellingen Fine Music Festival audience, as they have been part of the Festival since 2014.  This year it will again record graduating music students’ compositions in Sydney and perform these short works in the ‘Youth and Exuberance’ concert on opening night.
