The Alton Youth Symphony is putting out a call for host families again this summer. The symphony traditionally facilitates a visit from foreign student musicians that travel the Midwest during the summer. This year those young musicians are from Denmark.
The Symphony's Ann Cacciottoli tells The Big Z there will be a welcome dinner on July 23.

If you can't host a student but have sleeping bags, air mattresses or pillows you could loan out overnight, that would also be helpful according to Cacciottoli. For more information, call Barb Strack at the Alton Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau. That number is 6718-465-6676.
