“City Lights” host Lois Reitzes recently spoke with Catherine Hudnall, artistic director, and executive director Barbera Secrist about their upcoming winter concert.

“I feel like it is our job as music educators to support the students wherever their aspirations lie, whether that is to become an audience member later or to be a music minor and major in medicine or science. If they are considering entering the music field, I want to support them there as well,” Hudnall said.

MYSO will be performing a winter concert at the Rialto Center for Performing Arts on Feb. 16 at 3 p.m.
