LCSO Adds Student Apprentices For 2019-20 Season
The La Porte County Symphony Orchestra has selected three high school musicians to be a part of the ensemble for the 2019-20 season. They are:
Alyse Ames – flute
Logan Gard – clarinet
Afyah Giuliani – violin
The Student Apprentice Program has a long history with the LCSO though not active in recent years. Interim Music Director, Chuck Steck has made it a priority to re-instate this very important program with plans to continue beyond the current season.
Steck shared, “This is an important program for the orchestra to have. I was heavily influenced by the adults in the orchestras I performed with when I was a young musician, in particular the late Jim Garwood, the original Principal Trumpet of our orchestra. Now we have the chance to influence and give practical experience to young artists who are planning to include music in their adult lives and careers."
