This is a selection of excerpts from our 2017 GALA Concert performed at Mira Costa College Concert Hall on June 10, 2017. This 7 minute sampling ranges from beginning to very advanced pieces and gives an idea of the range of styles of music we play. The entire concert video is over 2 hours and is available on our website.
We are very proud of our student’s successes:
- We have had 5 of our students earn positions in the National Take A Stand Orchestra in 2016 and 2017, which is a partnership between the LA Philharmonic, Longy School of Music of Bard College, Soka University and El Sistema, USA.
- Over twenty of our students have received full or partial scholarships to attend the Arrow Bear Music Camp in the past three years. This is a resident orchestra camp which has been in existence since 1942.
- Additionally, fifteen of our students have joined the Mira Costa College Symphony Orchestra. Students who are at least sophomores in high school receive college credit.
