Music for Autism and The Help Group Present a Free Interactive Concert on March 3

1pm–3pm

Music for Autism and The Help Group present a free interactive concert for indivdiuals with autism and their families featuring the Lyris Quartet at The Help Group Autism Center Theater located at 13164 Burbank Blvd., Sherman Oaks, CA 91401.

The Lyris Quartet is a Los Angeles based string quartet. The quartet was created from a conversation between violinist Alyssa Park, who has enjoyed an illustrious career as an international soloist, and violinist Shalini Vijayan, who has built a career as an advocate of modern music as a member of Grammy- nominated groups. Drawing on their diverse backgrounds, these musicians chose to create a string quartet that could encompass their love for both standard and modern repertoire and commission works from living composers. Violinist Luke Maurer and cellist Timothy Loo joined the group, and Lyris was formally founded in 2008. The Lyris Quartet has performed at the most prestigious chamber music venues in Los Angeles, including the Bing Theater at Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Broad Stage, Zipper Hall at The Colburn School, Royce Hall and Disney Hall.

For more information please visit www.musicforautism.org or www.thehelpgroup.org. Music for Autism concerts are fully subsidized and free for all individuals with autism and their family members, but RSVPs are essential. Please RSVP under the “Concert Calendar” on www.musicforautism.org (preferred) or by calling 877.863.7473, x. 1.
