Education and Community

Nurturing creativity, curiosity, virtuosity

Through the thriving YOLA initiative and numerous other education and community programs, the LA Phil displays its commitment to the future of music and the very well-being of our city. We support the next generation of artists through our mentorship and community and school-based orchestras and high-school aged composers. We ignite the first spark of interest in symphonic music when school buses take over Grand Avenue and more than 10,000 children stream into Walt Disney Concert Hall. As a result, our community is becoming vibrant in the arts. Together we listen, we learn, and we make music. As Music Director Gustavo Dudamel has said, "The orchestra is a perfect metaphor for community."
