We'll be doing instrument petting zoos, music classes for kids and families, and playing a mix of chamber music, pop songs, and whatever else we feel like playing! Come on down and enjoy the whole event!!
Grow Music Missoula had representation in the 2023 YOLA National Orchestra Festival!
This fine, young musician attended the 10-day intensive that culminated with a performance in Walt Disney Concert Hall on Saturday, July 15, 2023. At 14 years of age, she was one of 6 cellists selected from a national audition to be a part of the YOLA Chamber Orchestra. The week was full of rehearsals with amazing professional teaching artists from institutions throughout the country, music workshops with current members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, a trip to see John Williams conduct live at the Hollywood Bowl, a live music performance and dance party at the Ford Amphitheater, lifelong music buddy friendship-building, and an ice cream date with Gustavo Dudamel.
The week ended with a final concert that was absolutely INCREDIBLE!
