Youth Orchestra Salinas – inspiring the lives of Salinas youth, one note at a time
 

We’re prepping for our back-to-back Winter Concerts in December for both Pre-Orchestra and Orchestra. Mark your calendars – Wednesday, 12/13/17 @ 6:30pm (Pre-Orchestra) and Thursday, 12/14/17 @ 6:30pm (Orchestra). See the flyers below for more details. We hope to see you at both!

As we started our Fall semester at the end of August, staff and students have been hard at work with multiple performances, kicking off the new year at Rancho Cielo’s Family Fun Day in August, followed by a Pre-Orchestra performance at Monterey Beach SportsFest in September. Our Orchestras also performed back to back Sundays in October at the annual outdoor community event, Ciclovía in Salinas, then the AIM for Awareness Rally (Youth Mental Health) at Lovers Point Park. We rounded out October and November with both Orchestra, Pre-Orchestra and Choir performances in Alisal at Cesar Chavez and Jesse Sanchez schools, as well as MLK Jr Academy at the Alisal Community Resource Festival. Check out the pics below for a closer look into what YOSAL’s been up to the past few months.

 

Here are the pics from our first YOSAL Palooza & BBQ in July at the end of our Summer program. The event was held at Kammann Elementary School. Thanks so much to staff, parents, students, volunteers, board members and donors who made this event such a success!

Welcome back, YOSAL Families!

Reminder, we start our new year on Monday, August 21st for all Orchestra and Pre-Orchestra students from the Salinas City Elementary School District and Salinas Union High School Districts. Orchestra and Pre-Orchestra students who are part of of the Alisal Union School District will begin on Tuesday, September 5th.
