Two alumni of the Hyde Park Youth Symphony are set to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight at 10:35 p.m. on CBS.
Xavier Perry, cello, and Nathaniel Scott, viola, are part of an all-Black musical ensemble — made up of members of the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra (CYSO) and Chicago Children's Choir — that will be included in a performance by local artist Peter CottonTale of his song "Together," which also features Chance the Rapper and singer Cynthia Erivo.
Both Scott and Perry are members of the CYSO's Philharmonic Orchestra. Perry was with the Hyde Park Youth Symphony through the end of last season, while Scott played there until 2018.
