YOLA's 10th Anniversary Tour

 

In honor of YOLA's 10th anniversary, 80 of the program's most advanced students, representing all three sites, will tour as an orchestra for the first time. They will kick off the tour in Los Angeles on October 23 at the Valley Performing Arts Center and then travel across California, visiting Visalia and Fresno, culminating in the historic Paramount Theatre in Oakland, where LA Phil Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel will conduct their final tour performance on October 30. The 45-minute educational concert will feature works by Beethoven, Brahms and Dvorak and involve a narrative and video component that will illuminate the transformative power of music and community – and pay homage to YOLA's rich ten year history.
