The Affiliates in the Desert will be collaborating with arts and musical organizations in our valley, hosting joint events to highlight the good work they are doing to support youth music education in our schools. Outstanding young musicians will be featured with virtual performances and Q&A discussions.
LA Phil Affiliates groups have played a vital role through their support of popular programs and events; we will do so again as soon as safe health conditions return:
- YOLA (Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles), Symphonies for Schools, and Toyota Symphonies for Youth will offer virtual and future concert-going experiences for children in our community.
- Workshops with Affiliate members, the LA Phil staff, and musicians, initially as virtual events and in the future as gatherings, will nurture and exchange ideas.
- Rehearsals will be an invaluable resource for students and Affiliates to learn about the music, performance and artists.
- Local Musical Events and Salons will offer opportunities to enjoy the LA Phil musicians and local artists in intimate and unique settings, while socializing with like-minded music lovers.
“My main goal, and it’s a big one, is that every child has a chance to get close to music – as a right – that as they have access to food, health, and education, they get the chance to have art and culture, especially music.”
– Gustavo Dudamel
