Newly formed Community & Youth Orchestra resumes rehearsals

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — The Lake County Symphony Association recently announced the fall season for its Community & Youth Orchestra.

Weekly rehearsals began in September and take place on Sundays from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Soper-Reese Theatre.

The Lake County Community & Youth Orchestra, or LCCYO, is a multi-generational performance-based group for musicians from middle school age to adults.

All players from Lake County and the surrounding areas with intermediate to advanced musical instrument experience are invited to join the orchestra.

In addition to being a group with experienced players, this is the perfect opportunity for young musicians just starting out, players wanting to improve their skills on a second instrument, or adults looking to re-familiarize themselves with an instrument they may not have played for years.

The LCCYO is currently recruiting for all orchestral instruments and calling for string players (violin, viola, cello, double bass), wind players (brass and woodwinds), and rhythm section/ percussionists (drums, timpani, piano, bass).

This Lake County-based group is open to musicians from the surrounding counties as well. Ridesharing is available and highly recommended for those traveling to rehearsals and performances from outside the county.

Whether you are a seasoned musician or have not performed with a group for a while, all are welcome to come explore music in a safe and supportive environment.

The LCCYO performs at least four times a year. In addition to an exclusive LCCYO spring concert, the group opens for the Lake County Symphony at their November “Classics” concert, the December “Christmas Celebration” and the ever-popular “Pops” concert in May.

This season, the Lake County Community & Youth Orchestra is directed by Dr. Camm Linden who is semi-retired from the film industry after working as a freelance composer/arranger and rehearsal conductor for various movie sound stages.

She plays multiple instruments in the Lake County Symphony; Linden played a Haydn piano concerto last season, sits regularly in the trumpet section, and has also been seen playing horn and percussion.
