The ultimate substitute picked up the baton.

Colorado Springs Youth Symphony Music Director and Conductor Gary Nicholson was away Feb. 28, the morning of the Celebrate Youth in the Arts fundraising breakfast performances. Filling in, to the delight of 400 guests and the young symphony musicians, was Colorado Springs Philharmonic Music Director Josep Caballé Domenec.

The symphony performances, along with selections by the Colorado Springs Children's Chorale and its ensembles, opened the day for the music-loving guests.

Speaker Jan Martin shared how lessons she learned through participating in music had served her well, including during her years on the City Council, and she thanked the parents because the symphony and chorale "are family affairs."

Martin quoted Children's Chorale Executive Director Marcia Hendricks, "These are unsettled times. These young people represent hope." The goal for the two groups through the fundraising event was $80,000.

Both organizations have impressive lists of upcoming events and training.

On April 15, chorale singers, along with high school and college choirs, perform Ola Gjeilo's Sunrise Mass at Ent Center for the Arts. On June 3, it's Broadway time at Pikes Peak Center. (kidssing.org)

The symphony's spring concert is May 6 at Pikes Peak Center. And in June, the Youth Symphony goes on tour to Australia and New Zealand and performs its repertoire in a local concert before leaving. (csysa.com)
