Crossing Classical Boundaries is a musical exploration that started with a simple idea: what could a non-classical musician create, in a broadly defined, yet true-to-form classical idiom if given access to a full Symphony Orchestra or a full Symphonic Band? The ideal outcome would be a concert that stretches musical boundaries for both the artist and our students.
We now offer Crossing Cultural Boundaries to bring in artists who take classical music beyond its traditional boundaries to explore new forms of music. At the 20th Anniversary Gala Concert in May 2011, YOBC was joined by Chris Brubeck and Triple Play for our inaugural concert in this series. In spring 2013 Grammy-award winning musician and composer Mark O'Connor led workshops and performed with all YOBC string players.
