With continued concern for the safety of our musicians and patrons, we made the difficult decision to revise our plan for the September 16 Celebration in honor of YCA’s Annaliese Soros Educational Residency Program. The event will now take place as an intimate online experience with music, video tributes, and special opportunities to visit with the artists. We are excited about the unique possibilities of a virtual presentation and look forward to sharing it with you!
