ASO Sympatico: Music for a Saturday Afternoon

May 20, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Torpedo Factory Art Center welcomes back ASO Sympatico for a special Saturday afternoon of music. This performance group was developed as a partnership between the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra and the Alexandria City Public Schools to provide high-quality music education for local elementary students who are underrepresented minorities or at-risk youth. This performance will feature three of their music ensembles: strings, beginning xylophones, and bucket band.

This performance is free, but RSVP is requested.

This event is co-sponsored by the Torpedo Factory Art Center as part of the Community Partnership Program.

About ASO Sympatico

ASO Sympatico seeks to create safe spaces within which students can take risks and make strong choices, promote student ownership of their role in an interdependent ensemble. Ensembles are hosted at John Adams Elementary School, a Title I and minority-majority school that benefits from a longstanding dual-language program and a Kennedy Center arts-integration partnership (Changing Education through the Arts).
