Spring Break is here! Last week we had our Spring Concert, where we performed a lot of fun pieces, congratulated Mr. Lucas on his new baby, and said goodbye to our Site Assistant Adam Satore. He is leaving YONA to focus on taking his Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology. We wish him all the best!
Over the spring break, 5 of our Teaching Artists had a chance to visit the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles, a leading El-Sistema inspired program in the United States. Here, we observed how their programs runs, asked the staff (and kids!) questions, and were refreshed with a renewed sense of that special “El-Sistema inspiration.”
YONA and classes will resume on Tuesday, April 3rd, stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
Take a look at some pictures taken from our spring concert and our trip to LA!
