That's a wrap! Thank you for tuning in and making the event an enormous success!

The programs that make up YOLA National bring people together who believe that music education has a powerful role to play in youth and community development. We’d like to thank our supporters, partners, presenters, and the young musicians who made YOLA National at Home possible, as well as everyone who was able to join in the conversation from all over the world. We are happy to have been able to connect online, but we can’t wait to see everyone again in person!

If you haven’t had a chance to watch these or any of the other incredible sessions, they are available to view below, where they will remain a resource available to all.

YOLA and El Sistema musicians perform “Somewhere” from West Side Story
