AFTER-SCHOOL YEAR PROGRAM
After-school programming focused on developing and honing musical skills while performing bi-lingual repertoire that represents the many cultures of our students and families.
Students will meet weekly after school and/or on Sunday afternoon as needed to develop skills like ear training and sight singing which are needed in preparing for public performances and activities.
"Los Jóvenes Cantantes", for children ages 8-12 is our main performance ensemble. This ensemble meets 2x per week. These children serve as ambassadors of cultural representation for Second Ward and the Greater East End. Public Performances at over 20 community and city-wide events annually help raise awareness to the importance of arts and culture education and representation. These performances are an crucial part of our programming which celebrates cultural identity building character and self-confidence in our children.
