BANGOR - The Bangor Symphony Youth Orchestras will perform their last concert of the season this weekend.
Performances by the Prelude String Orchestra, the Prelude Wind Ensemble, and the Philharmonic Orchestra look to tackle music that has been around for centuries.
This isn't just a normal youth concert, as these musicians are some of the best of the best.
"People are just amazed by the talent in Bangor and in this region of our students.We're basically ages 8-18 and you see some kids up there whose feet can barely touch the floor and yet they're making this beautiful music," says executive director Brian Hinrichs.
Conductor Sasha Zaburdaeva adds, "They are so willing to be sponges and pick up everything from the conductors, from their peers."
The concert will take place Sunday at 4 pm at Husson University's Gracie Theater.
The event is free and those attending are asked to bring canned goods for the Good Shepard Food Bank.
