Tribute a Huge Success
Maestro Steven Allen Fox had this to say after GSPO's "Great Composer Tribute: Elmer Bernstein" on February 15, 2014. "This concert was one of the most artistic performances by the GSPO musicians in our twelve years of existence. These incredible artists have lifted our organization to new heights. In addition to their mastery I would also like to say thank you to our special guests who helped in making the concert a special evening of music, stories and laughs."
