With the film industry buzzing in Georgia, Matthew was asked to speak to the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony about his journey in the entertainment industry. Founded in 1988, The Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony (AYWS) is the premier honor wind ensemble for high school youth in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Its purpose is to provide a positive musical experience in an artistic environment for advanced instrumentalists in wind and percussion performance. The AYWS rehearses and performs grade five and six (collegiate and professional) original wind band literature composed over a wide span of stylistic compositional periods. As an ensemble, it is one of the most visible ambassadors of culture and youth performance for Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
