Jamestown, NY – The Chautauqua Regional Youth Symphony (CRYS) board welcomed two new members at their September meeting.
CRYS gives music students in the southwestern New York/northwestern Pennsylvania region the opportunity to perform classical music in one of three orchestras.
“It’s exciting to begin our 28th season with two great additions to our board, Julie Pavlak and Dan Klinczer,” said President Tanya Anderson. “These professionals are sure to further enhance what we offer our young musicians!”
Both of the new board members are teachers in area schools.
Julie Pavlak teaches third grade at Falconer, where she was a student herself. A graduate of SUNY Fredonia, she is the Boosters secretary for the Falconer Marching Band. Now a Jamestown resident, Pavlak is very active in the lives of her three children, one of whom is a current CRYS student.
