The adage "all politics is local" certainly applies to politics.
But it also applies elegantly to classical music.
That's because nothing inspires an interest in classical music among young audiences as when local and young musicians are featured at concerts.
This is the charm of the Sacramento Philharmonic's partnering with the recently formed local nonprofit Talent Launch, Inc., and St. Hope's Guild Theater. All three will join forces to put the spotlight on local talented musicians.
The initiative is called "Monday Music at the Guild."
The first performance in that effort will be at 7 p.m. on Oct. 20, and will feature student ensembles from Rio Americano High School and the performance will be held at the Guild Theater at 2828 35th St., in Sacramento's Oak Park.
The Sacramento Philharmonic is facilitating the production of the concerts, said Charlie Weiss, director of development and marketing for the Sacramento Philharmonic.
"With this inaugural concert, Talent Launch and its partners expect to inject a new, youthful element into Sacramento's music scene, inviting young people from throughout the region to perform dynamic and eclectic musical programs," Weiss said.
