On Oct. 6 I attended the San Diego Symphony concert with Rafael Payare as the new conductor. I wasn’t really too sure what to expect, except maybe a lot of older people, which there were, but there was also a good mixture of younger people as well, which surprised me but also made me happy, seeing that more people around my age were starting to like classical music.

Make college more affordable with textbook alternatives

Joshua Nelson
