Sweet Success!
Our concert was such a success and all who attended got the most wonderful treats: Prelude music provided by the Staten Island Philharmonic Brass Section with guest artist Rev. Gary Squires, the superb sounds of the Aria Chamber Ensemble and congratulations to our 2013 Staten Island Philharmonic Youth Orchestra who surpassed their title of youth orchestra to the full house of attendees.  
We want to say thank you and show thanks to our supporters by supporting them. Please mention SIPYO when you patronize their businesses.

The children of SIPYO,

Last but not least we want to our wonderful SIPYSO team who worked behind the scenes to make this program a success: Concetta Ritorto, Carol Koenigsberg, Kate Kamish and Anona de Juana-Martin.
