The Oakland Symphony Youth Orchestra, led by principal conductor Omid Zoufonoun, rehearses every Sunday at Laney College in downtown Oakland. Consisting of nearly 90 members, students come from all over the Bay Area to participate in the orchestra. Auditions for the orchestra are held in May and August and students range in age from 12 to 22.

The Youth Orchestra will hold a winter concert on February 21 at the San Leandro High School Performing Arts Center. The program features Adolphus Hailstork’s American Fanfare, led by Oakland Symphony musical director and conductor Michael Morgan, as well as the work of Jean Sibelius, Alexander Borodin, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 in C Minor.
