The Music Enrichment Program
Children's Concerts - In January 2019 over 2,000 4th and 5th graders attended the unique Children's Concert programmed especially for young people. It was held in the 2400 seat Vic Lopez Auditorium at Whittier High School, on January 17 & 18, 2019. All of the youngsters have learned about the various musical instruments through the Symphony Association's popular Music Enrichment Program. As many children have never attended a symphony concert, they may not know proper concert etiquette. They learn not to whistle and when to applaud, as well as other appropriate behaviors. This year Conductor Kimo Furumoto planned a program geared to the young audience. Funding for these special concerts is always a challenge. The Rio Hondo Symphony Association is constantly seeking corporate, foundation, and other grants.
Children's Enrichment Program - The Rio Hondo Symphony Association cares deeply about children in our communities. Our concerts welcome family participation and celebrate their attendance. The Music Enrichment Programs, held at school sites, develop interest in instruments. In these programs, our concert host, Elizabeth Lauritsen presents stringed instrument lessons to 3rd grade students, Laura Stone presents woodwind lessons to 4th grade students, and Angela Romero presents brass instrument lessons to 5th grade students. Each student receives information about the Rio Hondo Symphony's concert schedule and encouragement to attend.
