CONCERT PLANNED TO CELEBRATE 20 YEARS OF FACE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

MONTREAL, JANUARY 25, 2018 – Current students and alumni are set to come together to mark the 20th anniversary of the FACE Symphony Orchestra (FSO) on Wednesday, February 21 (4:30 pm or 7:30 pm) at FACE School (3449 University) with a show-stopping concert.

Established in 1988 by teacher Theodora Stathopoulos, the FSO has motivated hundreds of students to reach their full musical potential and has helped expand and enrich FACE’s String Department.

In addition to the 25 current students in the FSO, six world-class soloists will also participate in the anniversary concert, three of whom are EMSB alumni. These alumni are: Brandyn Lewis (Double Bass in Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal 2017-2018), Lauren Tyros (Viola presently finishing music performance/Scholarship at McGill University) and Stephane Tetreault (International Soloist, Cello).

Over the years, the students’ hard work, talents and passions for music have received outside recognition, most notably when students were invited to perform at Place des Arts in 2002 with the late Yuli Turovsky and Miklos Takacs as guest conductors.
