Symphony Closes Season with Freedom Concert March 25

Paying tribute to immigrants from the British Isles and homage to the Underground Railroad, the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra presents Nkeiru Okove’s opera Harriet Tubman: When I Crossed That Line to Freedom for this final classics concert of the season.  The performance also includes Copland’s Fanfare to the Common Man and Handel’s Concerto Grosso No. 25, along with other notable selections. The concert begins at 8 p.m. at the DeYor Performing Arts Center in downtown Youngstown.


POPS at the Ballpark, a Youngstown Symphony Concert scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 19, at Eastwood Field, was postponed due to weather. So far no new date has been set for the event, but new information will become available here at or at the Mahoning Valley Scrappers website.

Wait, wait...! Poundstone to appear on Youngstown Stage in February!

WYSU is very happy to welcome one of the great humorists of our time, comedian Paula Poundstone to the Deyor Performing Arts Center on Friday, February 27, 2015.  

We hear Poundstone every week as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular news quiz show "Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!"  which airs on Saturday at 11 a.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. on WYSU.  She also tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country. One of her stops in early 2015 is Youngstown!
