The Organizational Arts Grant is made possible through a collaborative effort between YCF and Arts Council of Greater Morgantown, with funding from the City of Morgantown, the Monongalia County Commission and the Douglas H. Tanner Memorial Fund for the Arts.

As an added bonus to our festivities this year, we will be hosting a concert by the

Morgantown Community Orchestra at the Terrace later in the evening.

Morgantown Community Orchestra Concert at the Terrace

5:30 p.m.

 

The Morgantown Community Orchestra’s concert at the Terrace promises to leave you with a light heart and an elevated spirit. The largest it has been in over a decade, the orchestra is now over 50 musicians.

Under the baton of Dr. Alyssa Schwartz and Mr. Shaun Hancher, the ensemble will perform a joyful program of mostly incidental music and symphonic poems spanning from the 19th to the 21st century.

We encourage attendees to arrive at least thirty minutes early to enjoy the pre-concert music in the Celebration Garden and choose their seats.  This MCO concert is free and open to the public, however, seating is limitie and therefore pre-registration is required.  Walk-ins will be allowed only if space is available after all registered guests have been seated.
