About HPYO feat. Devon Savas & Stephanie Sloss
Devon Savas & Stephanie Sloss
Singer Stephanie Sloss & bassist Devon Savas are an eclectic duo based out of Hamilton, Ontario. Both are graduates of Mohawk College’s reputable Contemporary Music program, through which they met and began their collaborative endeavours. Through a repertoire that extends from jazz innovators (Nat King Cole, Sheila Jordan, Emilie-Claire Barlow) to modern day staples (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells, Queens of the Stone Age), Sloss & Savas offers up nothing short of an invigorating experience.
Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
Founded by the late Betty Webster Award winner Glenn Mallory in 1965, the Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra has given the joy and discipline of orchestral music to hundreds of young people, and has delighted the thousands for whom they have played.
Graduates of the orchestra are involved in professional and community orchestras across Canada, in the United States and in Europe. Even those who have not followed a musical career remain enriched by a musical and social experience that offers continuing pleasure as adults.
The orchestra is comprised of young musicians aged 24 and under. After a successful audition, each young musician must make a year long commitment to regular rehearsals and performances. Private study is strongly encouraged.
The orchestra performs not only the standard symphonic repertoire, but also contemporary works. In addition to performing regular local concerts, the orchestra has performed as far afield as Banff, Moosonee, Carnegie Hall, New York, Huntsville, Alabama and Northampton, England.
