The Young Musicians Foundation Debut Chamber Orchestra, Yuga Cohler, Lawrence N. Field Conductor-in-Residence, with Anne Akiko Meyers, violin, performs Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending, Einojuhani Rautavaara: Fantasia, and Poulenc: Sinfonietta.

Comprising approximately 70 talented musicians ages 15–25 from across the Los Angeles area, the orchestra hones the skills of students who are on the cusp of professional careers. Musicians are selected each year through blind auditions adjudicated by eminent Los Angeles-based musicians, and alumni of the orchestra perform today in virtually every major symphony orchestra in the country.
