Youth Orchestra Alumni
After two years of creative planning, the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra formed the Lone Star Youth Orchestra (LSYO) in 1999. LSYO welcomed Attilo “Larry” Lattanzi as its inaugural director and is currently under the direction of Dr. Kevin Pearce. Whether it’s been one year or even ten years since you’ve been a member of our youth orchestra, our alumni have shaped LSYO into what it is today. Can you believe it has been twenty years since the LSYO’s inaugural season in 1999?
