Giroux, executive director of the Horatio Alger Association. “This concert event is a time to honor our Pennsylvania and Maryland scholars and the members who have greatly contributed to the organization to sustain its presence is south central Pennsylvania.”

Mario Frangoulis is best known for his powerful and charismatic live performances. After two highly acclaimed international releases through Sony Classical, which were fixtures on the Billboard Classical Crossover Charts, “Sometimes I Dream” and “Follow Your Heart,” Mario has continued on a diverse path both in the studio and through live performances.
Mario was named International Ambassador of the Horatio Alger Association in December 2008 because of his love for mentoring and his ability to relate to teens. Like characters from the Horatio Alger books, he has overcome challenges in his own life, including being separated from his parents at age four. He often speaks of how music has been a source of healing and expression throughout his life. Mario believes in the mission of the Association, its scholarship programs, and the power of encouraging people to strive for their full potential.
