The Fine Arts Festival Honors Orchestra consists of 27 musicians—19 youth members (ages 14-18) and 8 adult chaperone musicians. The youth members were selected by competitive audition and come from 13 American states. The Orchestra’s repertoire includes various sacred and gospel music arrangements for orchestra and for voices with orchestra as well as classical music selections. This is the first time the organization has sponsored a European tour by the Orchestra.
The Orchestra is under the direction of ET's own Larry Dissmore.
