Join us for Longy's Gala on Monday, March 13, 2017! Sistema Side by Side concert in Sanders Theatre followed by a celebratory dinner in Annenberg Hall.
DON’T MISS OUT! Longy’s annual Gala will take place on Monday, March 13, 2017. The Sistema Side by Side Orchestra will perform in Sanders Theatre, and a celebratory dinner will follow in Annenberg Hall.
Last year, the evening was praised as “Longy’s best Gala ever”—and this year’s Gala promises to be even better!
Sistema Side by Side Orchestra
The Sistema Side by Side Orchestra places the mentoring of young musicians at its core. Throughout the year, Longy conservatory students mentor children from El Sistema-inspired programs across Massachusetts, and intensive weekend rehearsals give them the opportunity to deepen their musical skills, meet new faces and make new friends. Students from Dorchester meet students from Pittsfield, and students from Somerville interact with students from Hyde Park. In the process of rehearsing together, they learn that hard work and dedication can open doors to new opportunities for themselves—opportunities like performing (for the second time!) with charismatic Music Director of the LA Philharmonic, Gustavo Dudamel, who is a product of El Sistema in Venezuela where he grew up, which the Orchestra did at Sanders Theatre on November 7. And they’ll be performing for you at Longy’s annual Gala on March 13!
