A new musical opportunity is coming to the Village of North Palm Beach!
Farmer's Table restaurant in the Village Country Club is generously donating space to allow the new North Palm Youth Symphony (NPYS) to offer high quality musical instruction to string students in grades 9-12.
The NPYS website says it's a non profit organization dedicated to providing students high quality instrumental music instruction and ensemble experience.
Artistic Director Victor Fernandez, who was named "Instrumental Music Teacher of the Year" by the Palm Beach Symphony in December, says string players attending school in Palm Beach County have a lack of established high school orchestra programs with a full-time director.
But through the new program, symphony students can pursue excellence throughout high school and can be better prepared to apply to college music programs.
Rehearsals are held Monday nights at the Country Club at 5:30 p.m. Public performances and recitals will be scheduled at Farmer's Table once the students are ready, so check Village social media regularly for details and notices about performance dates.
The cost for the fall session is $195 and will include: 10 intensive rehearsals, all music, an NPYS music folder, an NPYS embroidered polo, guest artists, and a professional digital photo of the student with their instrument. Each session will conclude with a rehearsal and performance for the families.
