The project culminates with a Mini-Rehearsal and Premiere Performance of "Twelve Chinese Animals," presented by the Fort Wayne Philharmonic Youth Symphony and Youth Concert Orchestras, FAME Composer-In-Residence, David Crowe, Conductor, and the Fort Wayne Ballet Youth Company.Golf for Science Central
