The ALTYSO would like to encourage music supporters to make donations to this event to help cover the cost of hiring the professional musicians, says Rivette. Participating musicians have agreed to perform this concert for whatever funds the ALTYSO can come up with, because they feel that this educational experience is very important for the young musicians.
Dr. Todd Gabriel will be conducting the professional orchestra and the side-by-side, and there will also be a short presentation by ALTYSO’s Advanced Orchestra conducted by Christopher Allen, and Sinfonia String Orchestra conducted by Beverly Houston.
Donations for this event can be made to ALTYSO at 10015 Norris Ferry, Shreveport, LA 71106, or on-site at the concert. All donations are tax-deductible.
The concert is free and open to the public.
