Longy’s annual Gala will take place on Monday, March 13, 2017. Longy’s Sistema Side by Side Orchestra will perform in Sanders Theatre and a celebratory dinner will follow in Annenberg Hall. Last year, the evening was SOLD-OUT and praised as “one of Boston's best galas”—this year’s Gala promises to be even better!
Longy’s Sistema Side by Side Orchestra
The Sistema Side by Side Orchestra places mentoring of young musicians at its core. Throughout the year, Longy conservatory students mentor children from El Sistema-inspired programs across Massachusetts, and these intensive weekend rehearsals give the children the opportunity to deepen their musical skills, meet new faces, and make new friends. 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.
