December 1, 2016 (Spring Valley) -- The San Diego Festival Chorus & Orchestra is celebrating its 25th anniversary season, with a Chansons de Noel Concert this Sunday.
You can hear our exclusive interview with director Tony Mostardo by clicking the audio link above, originally aired on KNSJ radio 89.1 FM. He provides some fascinating insights into the major works in the upcoming concert, as well what inspired him to start this marvelous community musical group. He also recalls the group's auspicious beginning on a date now immortalized in history: September 11, 2001, and how the terrorist attacks impacted the group on day one.
His journey has taken him from Illinois to California, with many musical awards and honors along the way, as well as tours of Europe from concert halls to the great cathedrals.
