The ATL Symphony Musicians Foundation is proud to present our 8th Annual ATLSM/ASYO Appreciation Concert, in virtual format.
This year, we are featuring the inspiring musicians of the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra (ASYO), both past and present, in videos created during the lockdown last spring. You will also hear several testimonials from current ASO musician coaches, about how important and meaningful our relationship is with the ASYO students. Special thanks to Alice Hong, one of the original co-founders of the Appreciation Concert series, who introduces our concert and performs a lovely arrangement which she wrote, produced, and performed.
If you enjoy this Appreciation Concert tradition and would like to see more of these programs in the future, please consider a donation to the ATL Symphony Musicians Foundation.
