This week, we're talking with Jeff McSweeney, Executive Director of the Central Illinois Youth Symphony. They're presenting "A Musical Masquerade" tonight. It's a fund-raising event to support the CIYS and its programs for young musicians.
We talk about the CIYS, and the variety of orchestras and chamber ensembles it encompasses, and about some of the benefits young performers derive from participating in music. We also talk about what to expect from this this evening's event.
The Central Illinois Youth Symphony hosts "A Musical Masquerade," tonight at 6:00 at the Life Together Center, at 3601 North Sheridan Road in Peoria.
