YARMOUTH – A collaboration of intergenerational orchestral musicians will come together to perform symphonic pieces ranging from Dvorak to Schubert and Kabelevsky to Scarlatti Sunday, March 22, at the Yarmouth Performing Arts Center.

Kleinsinger’s “Tubby the Tuba” will delight young and old in this classic fairy tale of tributes to the unsung hero. This performance will be narrated by singer-songwriter Rick Charette.

The Maine Youth Orchestra, under the direction of conductor Paul Ross, cellist for the Portland String Quartet, will host the Augusta Symphony Orchestra, Cheverus High School String Ensemble and Bowdoin College cello student Maren Askin.

Charette has been capturing the hearts and spirits of young and old alike for many years with his inspirational songs. His performances blend original contemporary pop music and lyrics with imaginative activities that generate audience participation.

Cheverus’ string ensemble is made up of eight high-school string musicians who study daily during their regular school day, under the direction of Sean Potter.

Askin, who lives in Bangor, began studying cello at age 8. Her experience includes several chamber ensemble workshops.

She played in the Maine All State Orchestra from 2005-2008 and the All-eastern Honors Orchestra in 2007.

The concert will begin at 3 p.m. in the arts center at Yarmouth High School.
