There are cantiñas, and then there are cantiñas. On this show, Kristina explores the music of both the palo cantiñas and the family of cantiñas palos, if that makes any sense to you. If not, hopefully this show will illuminate those subleties…

Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies concert

Members of the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphony perform two numbers from a recent live concert: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, Opus 14, composed by Samuel Barber; and Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, Opus 47, composed by Dmitri Shostakovich.

The first selection features a violin solo by Anna Humphrey of Rogers, Minnesota. Anna is a senior at Buffalo High School, and has been playing violin since the age of 3. She’s been involved with the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies since 4th grade.

Founded in 1972, the Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies includes more than 700 young people, ages 8 through 18, who participate in seven academic-year orchestras and two summer programs. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mark Russell, and coached by members of the Minnesota Orchestra and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the youth perform 20 concerts each year at Orchestra Hall and the Ted Mann Concert Hall. They also present free concerts at community centers, homeless shelters, schools, and care centers across the Twin Cities. (Photo credit: Scott Helegson.)
