The Louisville Youth Orchestra mourns the loss of Maestro Rubin Sher on October 24, 2013. Maestro Sher co-founded the Louisville Youth Orchestra and was our Music Director from 1958 to 1975. Our November 24, 2013 performance, "New Worlds", will be performed in his honor. If you are one of the many lives he touched, you may want to post your thoughts on our Facebook page.  

The Maestro Rubin Sher Endowed Principal Oboe Chair has been established to permanently honor him and his legacy.  See the LYO Endowment Drive for more information.
