The Torpedo Factory Art Center welcomes back ASO Sympatico for a special night 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: Singing Eagles, Strings at Sunrise, and JABBA.
ASO Sympatico seeks to create safe spaces where students can take risks and make strong choices, while promoting 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).
This event is co-sponsored by the Torpedo Factory Art Center as part of the Community Partnership Program.
