What a breath of fresh air the "Side by Side" concert was May 19 at Beaufort High School. The Beaufort Symphony Orchestra and the Beaufort Symphony Youth Orchestra were wonderful together.
The choice of music was superb. Who doesn't love a combination of classical and Broadway hits from "Les Miserables" to "A Salute to Satchmo"?
The four violins showcased the young performers, who dazzled the audience.
The house was packed, and they did a second performance at Sun City Hilton Head.
Hats off to conductor Fred Devyatkin for conducting with such enthusiasm and giving us such a wonderful afternoon in Beaufort.
