This year, the concert is all about animal fun and bringing out concert-goers' wild side. A trio of young musicians and Concert Orchestra conductor Melanie Sever stopped by GMN to give a sneak peek of what they have planned.

In addition to music selections centered around their "creatures great and small" theme, the Lake Superior Zoo will stop by before the concert with live animals. The DSSYO will also have an "instrument petting zoo."

"Some of our youth orchestra members will be out in the lobby, interacting with the kids that are coming, and showing them their instruments," said Sever. 

The DSSYO program has three main groups - the Symphonia, the Concert Orchestra, and the Youth Symphony. They also have a Percussion Ensemble and for the Lollipop Concert, they will feature a Harp Ensemble. The groups are made up of musicians from around the Twin Ports and beyond. 

The young musicians who stopped by GMN are members of the Youth Symphony. Erica Anderson plays the violin, Josh Peterson plays the viola, and Jace Jordan plays the Cello. Anderson is a student at Marshall School, Peterson and Jordan attend Duluth East. 

The Lollipop Concert is Sunday, March 12 at the DECC Symphony Hall. Interaction with the Lake Superior Zoo animals begins at 2:00 p.m., with the concert beginning at 3:00 p.m. For ticket information or to learn more about the DSSYO, click here.
