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.

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).
