Classical 101.1 WRR Focus on the Arts: Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra continues to cultivate the next generation of exceptional musicians

Fifty years ago, a group of parents, educators, and musicians who value music education banded together to create the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, which today includes nearly 500 students performing in nine ensembles from more than 50 communities in North Texas. WRR’s Amy Bishop sat down with GDYO’s Executive Director Cathy Hernandez to chat about their big anniversary, which includes the annual season finale performance and fundraising gala at the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.
