Sinfonia Celebrates 10 Years


July 2, 2015

VIE magazine is very excited to reach out to continue its media sponsorship of Sinfonia Gulf Coast orchestra throughout its tenth anniversary season. To celebrate the momentous occasion, VIE will be Sinfonia’s exclusive media partner and will include a large feature story on the program in our Culture Issue, with the cover featuring a collection of Sinfonia’s best and brightest guest performers throughout its ten years!

The cover will be accompanied by a feature story and many other stories focusing on Sinfonia and its initiatives to bring great music to the Gulf Coast region and beyond, its fantastic educational programs for children, and highlights of the many great performers of our time who have been brought to the area by Sinfonia’s founder and maestro, Demetrius Fuller.
