The English Chamber Orchestra's Benefit Concert for Musicopia

Access to great music is critical in developing a love of the art form and its traditions. As WRTI's Susan Lewis reports, that's a premise of a collaboration between the English Chamber Orchestra and Musicopia, an organization that brings music to young people, especially in areas without other music programs. 

Maestro Mark Laycock conducts the English Chamber Orchestra in a benefit concert for Musicopia on January 27, 2015 at the Kimmel Center.

On January 27, 2015, Mozart's birthday, Mark Laycock leads The English Chamber Orchestra in a concert at the Kimmel Center benefiting Musicopia. The concert features the music of Mozart, Holloway, and Elgar. Ticket information here.
