FEATURING SISTEMA SIDE-BY-SIDE

Save the Date:
Monday, March 16, 2020

Longy’s Sistema Side-by-Side Program grew out of a generous gift from Garth and Lindsay Greimann in 2013. Since then, the program has grown from 35, to over 110 young musicians! By attending Longy’s Gala each year, you can help us ensure the continued success of this life-changing program.

Here’s to the next seven years of Sistema Side-by-Side!
