This Academic Year, we:

  • Expanded our outreach to new school districts throughout the nation with our Virtual Concert: Ferdinand the Bull with the Classics Philharmonic Orchestra, with over 24,000 students registered to view it and 962 views.
  • Partnered with Mariachi Garibaldi, actor Yurel Echezarreta, classical guitarist Fred Benedetti, The Living Coast Discovery Center, and Crown Point Junior Music Academy to bring three concerts to the historic Balboa Theatre.
  • Bolstered the arts industry by employing 20 professional orchestra musicians and 40 guest artists/educators.
  • 14 classroom docents and 21 concert ushers generously volunteered a total of 233.5 hours. With the average value of a volunteer hour in California at $29.95, this equates to a remarkable in-kind contribution of $6,994 to our community.
