2 OUR MISSION Through Gustavo Dudamel s Youth Orchestra LA (YOLA) program inspired by Venezuela s revolutionary El Sistema the LA Phil and its community partners provide free instruments, intensive music training, and academic support to students from underserved neighborhoods, empowering them to become vital citizens, leaders, and agents of change. Gustavo Dudamel rehearses with YOLA at EXPO It has been a dream to see YOLA grow and to watch how these students have changed on an artistic level, and also as citizens. Gustavo Dudamel, Music Director, Los Angeles Philharmonic YOLA at HOLA performs at Walt Disney Concert Hall

3 WHAT IS YOLA? Youth Orchestra LA (YOLA) provides students ages 6-18 a strong musical and social foundation through participation in hours of programming each week. With sites in South L.A. (YOLA at EXPO), the Rampart District (YOLA at HOLA), and East L.A. (YOLA at LACHSA), YOLA engages students from more than 200 schools in L.A. County. Intensive music study is complemented by academic support, leadership opportunities, parent workshops, and performances - both in the community and in world-class venues such as Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. YOLA students perform side-by-side with the LA Phil The interdependence of the LA Phil s artistic and social imperatives find expression in YOLA, which is altering the course of young lives through the power of music.
