As we begin the new season, we’re feeling the absence of a talented musician. SBYSO was saddened to learn of the recent passing of a former member, Anna “Phoenix” McCool. Anna was a flautist and longtime and active SBYSO member; she participated in our Chamber Music Program, field trips, and many community outreach events, such as our Barnes & Noble Book Fair. Anna was also a recipient of a Summer Music Camp scholarship. Her sister Natalia is a current member of SBYSO.
