'Evening of Classical Favorites' set

URBANA — The newly formed St. Pat's Youth Orchestra will perform "An Evening of Classical Favorites" from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday at St. Patrick's Parish Center, 708 W. Main St.

Admission is free, and a dessert reception will follow the concert.

Students founded the orchestra this past spring to provide a healthy and supportive environment for students in grades 7-12 who feel passionately about orchestral music.

The students run the ensemble and select, arrange and conduct the music. The orchestra has 35 or so members, representing at least seven schools in Champaign-Urbana.

On Aug. 4, The News-Gazette will publish a feature on the new ensemble.
