From Art of Élan's Season 13 Announcement:
"The new 3-year BaCH Initiative (Beyond a Concert Hall) brings the timeless music of J.S. Bach to people in unusual places. This multi-year project is designed to bring the beauty and transportive power of Bach to a variety of unusual and adventurous settings.
The BaCH Initiative kicks off in the rotunda of the San Diego Museum of Art on November 19 and will include performances and collaborations with the La Jolla Music Society, Mira Mesa High School, and the Centro de Artes Musicales in Tijuana."
More to come as we move through the fall. Thank you for the invitation, Art of Élan!

Air Force ROTC and Orchestra | Crossover Students
below is a picture from April 2017, when our musicians traveled to Washington, District of Columbia and performed at the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Our orchestra students are involved in a variety of activities and organizations on our campus and in our community, including the Air Force ROTC program. Pictured here are three of the ROTC leaders at the time who also were members of our Symphony Orchestra (bass, violin, and cello, respectively).
The Air Force Memorial is pictured (distantly) in the background.
One of the selections for our Spring Concert is 'Three Metallic Spires', which was inspired by the memorial pictured here in the background.
