Pacific Symphony's Spring Concert Set for 3/3

The highly-respected students of Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble (PSYWE) have the rare first-time experience of performing with the magnificent 4,322 pipes of the William J. Gillespie Concert Organ in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall for their "Spring Concert."
