Back in April 2016, the Downey Patriot, an online publication, visited the La Mirada Symphony Orchestra during a performance at the La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts that included thirty middle school musicians in a very special concert.

During their visit, they spent time with our conductor Alan Mautner and many of the young people who were chosen to perform with the symphony on stage.
