Beginning this fall, two IUP music majors, Ashadeth Santiago (freshman viola major) and Michael Weaver (senior bass major) are serving as mentors in the new Johnstown Symphony Youth Orchestra Mentoring program.

In this program, IUP music majors take on leadership roles as section leaders in rehearsals and concerts. Students are accepted by application, and the JSO provides a stipend for travel expenses. It is a wonderful opportunity for IUP music majors to develop their teaching and leadership skills while supporting the JSYO program.
