PITTSBURG, KS.--- Dozens of people fill a Pittsburg bank for a good cause this evening. Members of the Southeast Kansas Symphony used their musical talent to raise money for the organization at a fundraising event held at Arvest Bank. The group is made up of musicians of all ages who perform for the community throughout the year. Organizers say the funds raised through the event will help the group reach a higher potential.
"Eventually what we're getting is to be able to get funds to really bring in artists, you know first world artists. For example, this semester, this year we're bringing in Mark O'Connor in April," said Raul Mungia, SEK Symphony Director.
Those attending paid $20 a ticket to enjoy the music, food and drinks.
