The FSO and its musicians have been an integral part of the community for 60 years, and we are passionate about supporting music education programs throughout Fairfax County schools.
On Sunday, June 18 at 5pm, the Fairfax Symphony presents acclaimed pianist Simone Dinnerstein with the Havana Lyceum Orchestra in their American debut to perform works from their new album, Mozart in Havana. Recorded with the orchestra in Cuba, it may be her most ambitious project to date and is a testament to music’s ability to cross all cultural and language barriers. The concert will be the first time an orchestra of this size has traveled to the U.S. from Cuba since the revolution.
The FSO is making tickets available at a discounted price ($20 adults/$10 students) to support summer music camp scholarships for Woodburn Elementary School. This Title 1 school is in desperate need to fund $1,200 in scholarships to allow more students to attend their music camps this summer.
For every ticket purchased with this link, 100% of the proceeds will go to support Woodburn scholarships.
The concert will feature Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 & 23, Copland's Appalachian Spring, and works by Carlos Fariñas.
Thank you for helping us make the music possible for Woodburn students this summer!
