Launched in 2017, this new education initiative brings together the brightest young musicians from across Fairfax County for a rare opportunity to perform with the FSO.  These talented musicians, selected through a competitive audition process, receive personalized mentoring and coaching from FSO musicians leading up to this collaborative concert and are Fairfax County’s dynamic music ambassadors.
