As posted last year,No Doubt has been invited by the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Composer Fellowship Program to collaborate with Youth Orchestra L.A. students,who are creating a multiple-movement classical piece inspired by the No Doubt songs “Suspension Without Suspense,” “Rock Steady” and “Simple Kind of Life.” The performance of the piece by the YOLA EXPO Center Youth Orchestra(which No Doubt will not be attending) is scheduled as part of a free evening concert at Santee High School on Feb. 26. The orchestra had said that the band would be attending a Youth Orchestra L.A. rehearsal to meet each of the composer fellows,and participate in a Q&A session with YOLA musicians and composer fellows. Now,according to a post by a YOLA student on No Doubt’s facebook page,it seems that the rehearsal will be taking place this next coming Saturday,January 22:
NO DOUBT! You Guys Are Coming To My Orchestra; YOLA Next Saturday And I Am Extremely Excited, And i Can’t Wait. I Absolutely Love You Guys, And i Have Been Practicing Extra On Your Guys’ Pieces To Perform For You Guys. 😀 – Jasmin ♥
Congratulations to both No Doubt on being asked to collaborate with the orchestra,and to the lucky YOLA students who will be working with the band!
