The evening also will feature an exhibition of contemporary art by young Texas artists curated by Joseph Staley.
“Thanks to our loyal supporters, YTA was able to weather two years of COVID cancellations and make a major comeback last spring,” said Susie Moore Pokorski, President/CEO of Young Texas Artists. “Now, with much gratitude, we’re preparing to launch a new season. As we kick it off with Classics At The Glade, we’ll be honoring our 2022 Annual Fund donors, who are helping us continue our mission of encouraging excellence in young Texas musicians, inspiring their audiences and enriching the cultural life of our state.”
YTA’s new season will include the Young Texas Artists Music Competition, culminating in the YTA Finalists’ Concert & Awards on Saturday, March 11, 2023.
The season also will include YTA’s Bach, Beethoven & Barbecue benefit gala on the same day, as well as other YTA-sponsored events for the community. All events will take place in downtown Conroe.
