WAILUKU — The Maui Youth Philharmonic Orchestra (MYPO) will hold its fifth annual Spring Concert on Sunday, April 25, at 3 p.m. in the Baldwin High School Auditorium.

Violin soloist Samuel Lim, student of Leah Tinkleman, will perform “Concerto No. 22” by G. Viotti.

The program will also include works by Tschaikovsky, Offenbach, Grainger and Telemann, plus selections from “Beauty and the Beast,” “Harry Potter” and more.
