The Alton Youth Symphony is mid-way through its week-long summer camp.  Young musicians are attending the camp, coming from all over.  Symphony President Joe Cacciottoli says this is the third year for the camp.

Cacciottoli comments

Alton Youth Symphony was formed in 1969 when Ken Conrady, Larry Crabbs, and small group of music teachers from the Alton area recognized the need to extend musical opportunities to students whose schools either had no music program or a program too small to include an orchestra.
