Kate Remington talked with Jonathan about why this opera is so special.

On Sunday, May 8, Mother's Day, the Norwalk Youth Symphony presents its last concert of the season as a send-off for the graduating members, as well as a "thank you" for all their family support.

Kate Remington talked with Jonathan Yates, conductor of the Youth Symphony, about the experience the orchestra provides for these talented kids.
