BIOGR APHIES Hannah Greene is an eighth-grader at Kettle Moraine Middle School. She has been playing violin and piano since she was four, but she only recently began composing. She has been fortunate to have wonderful teachers along the way including Dorothy Brauer, her first Suzuki violin teacher; Vince LaTona, her first piano teacher; Karl Orvik; John Patek, her current violin teacher; and her beloved piano teacher, Diane Kachelmeier. She has had fantastic summers at Interlochen Arts Camp for the last five years, including four years in the Junior String Ensemble with MYSO’s own Mr. Rindt. Hannah lives on a small farm in Delafield with dogs, cats, horses, and a miniature donkey. She loves soccer, softball, and skiing. Hannah would like to dedicate this piece to her grandmother, Marjorie Epps Mitchell, who has been so supportive of her musical endeavors through the years.
Sonora Brusubardis, age 13, is home schooled and studied Suzuki violin with Mary Ellen Meyer, Lindsay Erickson and Dorothy Brauer. During this time Sonora consistently received superior scores from the National Federation of Music Clubs. Currently she is studying with Dr. Bernard Zinck. Sonora was a winner of the 2009 MYSO String Orchestra Concerto Competition. She has been a member of the Latvian Community Choir since 2007. Sonora had the opportunity to play various roles in a musical production of Christmas Carol for four years with Archangel Productions. Other interests include spending time outdoors, especially with friends, and doing crafts such as jewelry making, crocheting, and scrap booking. She also enjoys performing often with her five siblings and parents.

J O H N D OW N E Y C R E AT I O N P R OJ E C T MYSO is proud to collaborate with one of America’s premier new music ensembles, Present Music, as we bring nine world premiere student compositions to performance this year. In memory of Dr. John Downey, both a visionary composer and an inspiring man, MYSO musicians are invited to have the opportunity to meet with a professional who guides them from the early structural and conceptual issues of composition through the final printing and rehearsals of their work. The John Downey Creation Project provides MYSO ensembles, as well as MYSO composers, important and exciting experiences by undertaking the many challenges of new music. John Downey served as Director of Music Theory and Composition for Music For Youth/MYSO for more than 40 years and was a very important and beloved member of the MYSO family until his passing in 2004. Dr. Downey, a Distinguished Professor of Music at UW-Milwaukee, was an internationally renowned composer who collaborated with the great artists of his time and, among many honors, was knighted by the French government. Among many pieces performed by musicians all over the world, he wrote a number of works for Music For Youth/MYSO, as his MYSO students were an essential and joyous part of his career. Professor Downey played a critically important role in the lives of thousands of students, several of whom have become noted composers. He was absolutely central to our organization and mission for many years. This season, MYSO’s Sinfonia, Senior Symphony Brass Choir, two MYSO chamber ensembles, Junior Wind Ensemble, Senior Symphony, Flute Chorale, Chamber Flute Ensemble, String Orchestra and Philharmonia will debut works by John Downey Fellows. We are confident that Dr. Downey would be thrilled by the enthusiasm, creativity and the seriousness of purpose displayed by these young MYSO composers, to whom he would have referred as “my geniuses.” 20 Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra
J O H N D OW N E Y C R E AT I O N P R OJ E C T ( c o n t .) The 2011 John Downey Fellows and the MYSO ensemble for which they are composing are as follows: Thomas Bagin, MYSO Brass Quintet as part of MYSO’s Chamber Ensembles Program; Alexandra Greene and John Hougard, Senior Symphony; Hannah Greene, Sinfonia; Torrin Hallett, MYSO Woodwind Quintet as part of MYSO’s Chamber Ensembles Program; Max Lin, Flute Chorale; Jerome Linn, Junior Wind Ensemble; Luke Patterson, Philharmonia; Sabrina Raber, Chamber Flute Ensemble; and Jake Van Bendegon Jr., String Orchestra North/South.

M I LWAU K E E YO U T H S Y M P H O N Y O R C H E S T R A Celebrating 55 years of excellence in arts education, Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra (MYSO) has grown from a single orchestra of 30 in 1956 to become, by several measures, the largest and most extensive youth orchestra program in the country. Serving more than 900 talented young musicians from as many as fourteen counties in Southeastern Wisconsin, this award-winning program offers the highest level of training in ensemble musicianship to motivated young people from diverse backgrounds across southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Students with varied levels of instrumental skills benefit from the broad range of MYSO experiences, all created to foster talent, build character and enhance lives by nurturing an enduring love of music. In 2005, MYSO moved into the acclaimed Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, a collaborative initiative of MYSO and First Stage Children’s Theater. Home, also, to dance and vocal music training programs, this 56,000 sq. ft. state of the art facility in Milwaukee’s historic Schlitz Park is quickly becoming a national model for arts education, with a mission of using the arts to enhance all children’s lives. Several innovative MYSO offerings, prompted and made possible by the move, have received notable awards and recognition—locally, regionally and nationally— particularly for MYSO’s ambitious efforts in outreach and community partnerships. Building on the rich past of its first half-century, MYSO combines many respected, established programs with exciting new ventures. Founded with assistance from the Junior League and Rotary Club of Milwaukee, MYSO’s offerings have expanded from a single orchestra to include: Senior Symphony—MYSO’s flagship ensemble is a full symphony orchestra made up of very advanced players, generally in the upper grades of high school. It has long been recognized as one of the nation’s top youth music ensembles,hailed for artistic excellence both nationally and internationally. Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra 25
M I LWAU K E E YO U T H S Y M P H O N Y O R C H E S T R A ( c o n t .) Philharmonia—This full symphony orchestra provides musicians with experience in preparing a great variety of shorter works from the romantic to post-modern periods; comprised generally of younger high school musicians. Chamber Orchestra—A subset of the Senior Symphony, this is a very advanced group organized to play standard chamber orchestra repertoire—music not generally played by the large symphony orchestras. Sinfonia/Junior Symphony Orchestra—A large, intermediate-level string orchestra whose members are generally in middle school and early high school. In the spring, selected wind players from the Junior Wind Ensemble augment this group to form the Junior Symphony Orchestra, playing full orchestra literature. Junior Wind Ensemble—An intermediate-level wind ensemble comprised of woodwind, brass and percussion players in grades 6-9. String Orchestra—A string training program, which rehearses as four smaller groups at regional sites around the area (Central, North, South and West). These groups combine to perform as two large orchestras. Chamber Flute Ensemble—An advanced, multi-part flute choir that works on cutting edge, advanced flute ensemble repertoire and more sophisticated arrangements of orchestral repertoire. Flute Chorale—A multi-part flute choir that plays standard flute ensemble repertoire and arrangements of orchestral repertoire. Members are generally in middle school or early high school. Progressions—an intensive, introductory string training program consisting of lessons and orchestra experience; directed toward City of Milwaukee populations which have previously been under-represented in MYSO. MYSO Jazz Studies—consisting of classes and small combo opportunities for middle and high school students, with a special focus on City of Milwaukee students. Calypso—a steel band, originally formed in partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools. White Rock Elementary initiative—a beginning string instrument training program at White Rock Elementary School, a predominantly Latino public school in downtown Waukesha MYSO’s extensive schedule of rehearsals, performances, outreach initiatives and enrichment opportunities also includes: a large chamber music program, music theory and composition classes, “side-by-side” rehearsals, combining less experienced players with those who are more advanced, free master classes, workshops, competitions, recitals and much more. MYSO has partnered with numerous other organizations to better serve both students and community. Examples of these collaborations, in addition to the facility initiative with First Stage Children’s Theater, include side-by-side reading workshops with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, an annual concert with the Milwaukee Children’s Choir, Jazz Collab, a joint venture with the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, a “new music” composition initiative with Present Music, a talent development partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs, ongoing programs in cooperation with Milwaukee Public 26 Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra
M I LWAU K E E YO U T H S Y M P H O N Y O R C H E S T R A ( c o n t .) Schools and periodic artistic initiatives with such groups as Danceworks, Master Singers and Milwaukee Choristers MYSO’s talented music faculty members blend creativity and pedagogical expertise with their great breadth of musical knowledge. They come from all corners of the musical world and include UWM faculty, Milwaukee Symphony players, seasoned and recognized school educators and other noted area musicians. MYSO’s experienced, capable administrative staff has been remarkably stable while at the same time doubling the organization’s enrollment over the past fifteen years and successfully completing the fundraising for—and building of—a major new community facility. The entire MYSO family is united by its dedication not only to training future performers and music educators but especially to developing in many thousands of adults a much deeper appreciation of the arts in general—and fine music in particular—and to using the arts to enhance lives. While participation in most MYSO ensembles is tuition-based, we have a longstanding commitment to making our programs available to all qualified musicians; scholarship assistance is available upon application, and no student need be denied an opportunity to participate because of financial need. MYSO has been a member of the United Performing Arts Fund since UPAF’s founding in 1969. We are grateful to UPAF and to the thousands of other generous donors who make our programs possible!
