YOLA at Camino Nuevo
Time & Location
About the Event
Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA) currently serves more than 1,300 young musicians across four sites, providing them with free instruments, intensive music instruction (up to 18 hours per week), academic support, and leadership training. The program began as an adaptation of Venezuela’s revolutionary El Sistema music education program, but it is now an innovative model in its own right, guiding students and teachers from nearly 100 music programs around the country.
YOLA at Camino Nuevo is the first in-school YOLA model, allowing the LA Phil to bring rigorous music education into the school day and extend it after school. Currently serving students in grades K-8 at Camino Nuevo Charter Academy’s Kayne Siart campus, the program focuses on helping students grow musically, academically, socially, and cognitively while also cultivating community through the power of music.
