It’s Music Director Carlos Izcaray’s fourth season with the orchestra, and he revels in programming a wide range of repertoire, from familiar works to a world premiere. In May, Jihyun Kim’s latest work, a co-commission between AYS, the American Composers Orchestra, and the Alabama Symphony, will be unveiled at Royce Hall.
