Event Details

Mendelssohn called the Italian Symphony “the jolliest piece I have ever done.” The piece acts as a musical postcard, documenting Mendelssohn’s travels through the rolling hills and bustling cities of Italy. 

For this event, the ASO is partnering with Desert Island Supply Company, a non-profit dedicated to helping students develop the creative tools they need to explore and document their worlds.
