    Wow! For everyone reading this article. Please attend this very very special event. These kids are amazing!! Even if you don;t like music. To see these kids perform at a profesional level in a professional venue like the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall is simply quite amazing. My son Matthew played with them a few years ago and all I can tell you is that the Pasific Youth Organization is a welcoming place for young musicians in Southern California. I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
