Crescendo Young Musicians Guild receives a $10,000 grant from The Metabolic Studio!

The $10,000 is now being used to pay for a much-needed climate-controlled storage space to house our instruments and supplies, venue rental for our concerts, liability insurance, and for administrative support to help coordinate our ever-expanding programs.

Thank you, Metabolic Studio, for believing in our mission and for supporting us in bettering our communities through music!

Summer Workshops conclude with a wedding

CYMG Chamber Strings students at first wedding gigCYMG Chamber Strings students ended their summer workshops by performing at a beautiful wedding in Downtown Los Angeles. The students played for 45 minutes before the ceremony, for the processional, and the candle-lighting ceremony.  The students had a wonderful experience. For most of them, it was their first time performing at a wedding! Great job!!
