Midwest Young Artists Goes to the Malls!
Concert hall rental, the costs to market this concert, other competing downtown holiday concerts including the CSO's Welcome Yule concerts with our own Voices Rising Childrens' Choir, and the Big Band performance at Midwest Band and Orchestra Conference this week, made us rethink our holiday concert plan for this year. Credit goes to Dr. D, MYA's Maestro, for suggesting we take our music to the malls. It was a great idea, well carried out by our staff, and tremendously popular with our parents, students and hundreds of mall shoppers yesterday at Northbrook Court and Hawthorn Westfield Mall. Let us know what you think!
