Musicians throughout the community appreciate the support of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Guild, said Colorado Springs Youth Symphony Orchestra conductor/music director Gary Nicholson. The guild's support is so important that the CSYSA nominated it for the Arts business Education Consortium's award for Ongoing Support for the Arts in the Pikes Peak Region.

Celebrating their appreciation, the youth symphony association invited guild leaders to an afternoon tea of finger sandwiches and petit fours on the wrap-around porch of the historic Old North End home of Dave and Paula Munger.

Judy Folsom's soft harp melodies welcomed guests into the hosts' yard and provided a musical background.

Greeting guests were association president Lynn Peterson and vice president Nancy Pittman.

CSYSA Executive Director Keven Stewart was introduced to guild members and described the group's recent tour which included Carnegie Hall, Prague and Berlin, combining music and history. He appreciated this opportunity afforded the young musicians because as a trombonist in a youth symphony on the West Coast when he was young, he had been afforded a similar opportunity, he said.

Upcoming: Night of White Lights CSYSA fundraiser, an all-in-white evening of music and shopping at a location kept secret until the day before the Sept. 17 "experience." Tickets on CSYSA website and Facebook.
