The Empire State Youth Orchestra’s 2023-2024 season is a celebration of unity, harmony, and the collective spirit of music. The season is called Breathe and it begins on Sunday, October 29, at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall with ESYO's flagship Symphony Orchestra performing Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” and featuring the 2023 Lois Lyman Concerto Winner, William Lauricella, performing Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto.
