Christmas Concert with our Symphonies!

The Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony, led by Conductor Richard Haglund, took part in the Annual Holiday Pops Concert on Saturday December 21, 2008. The concert is held each year at the Sangamon Auditorium, University of Illinois, Springfield Illinois and is a production led by the famed Illinois Symphony Orchestra (ISO).

Each year, the SVYS gets to play alongside ISO and this year, they were allowed three Christmas favorites! Bernie Lutchman III, 16, is a percussionist with SVYS in his 4th year and can be seen in the background as Maestra Karen Deal, of the ISO conducts both orchestras!!What a blessed and fun time for our family and all families involved in this excellent music adventure! There was such a great Christmas spirit everywhere!
