CYESO Honors Mr. Seckinger at Celebration of Life Service

Citrus Youth Orchestra President Rebecca Limehouse conducts students at the Celebration of Life for Harold Seckinger, Founding President of CYESO

CYESO Founding President and President Emeritus, Harold Seckinger passed away May 31. A Celebration of Life was held June 7 at Heinz Funeral Home in Inverness. Many of our CYESO students attended and performed a few of Mr. Harold's favorite songs to honor him. His family and friends, current and past, gathered and shared their fondest memories of their time spent with Harold, and also got to enjoy a slideshow of photos from his life. We will miss him dearly, and are truly blessed to have known him.

CYESO Vice President, Martin Hoffman, broached the idea of establishing a Harold Seckinger Memorial Scholarship Fund so that no family or student would be unable to join the orchestra. Within a day, the Board of Directors voted to implement that suggestion. Contributions to the Harold Seckinger Memorial Scholarship Fund may be made online using the below "Donate" button, or by mailing a check made out to CYESO to 4206 S Hazelton Terrace Homosassa, FL 34446. Please indicate on your check “Scholarship Fund.”

Mr. Harold's Postscript from Chronicle

Music changed his life and he wanted it to change others

By the time Harold Seckinger was 85, he had already lived a rich, full life.

The self-described “simple farm boy” from Marion County had been, among other things, an architect, a painter, artist, musician, sailor, sculptor, poet, farmer and writer.

In 2011, Seckinger embarked on what he considered the “most exciting and rewarding” thing he had ever done in his life — the creation of the Citrus Youth Educational Symphonic (YES) Orchestra, as he told the Chronicle in September of that year.  READ MORE...
