“You own the world with that instrument” - Gustavo Dudamel

8 students from our YOLA EXPO program were in London last month with the LA Philharmonic on their European tour. Students joined an orchestra of young musicians from London in an open rehearsal with Gustavo Dudamel. They also participated in a Leadership Forum, toured some sights, saw the LA Philharmonic perform Mahler’s Symphony No. 3, and ate some great Indian food! Lucky kids!

61 Harmony Project Seniors applied for our 2016 Banchik Family College Scholarship, awarding eligible Seniors with $5,000 towards college costs. Applicants wrote an essay about their time with Harmony Project and were interviewed by a panel of Board Members.

"Harmony Project has taught me to dream and aspire to be greater than what I see around me.
Music has opened the windows of my soul and made me a better person."
- Ryan, HP Senior
