The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra (SCVYO) invites all young musicians to attend the next “Visiting Artists Program” workshop that will be taking place Saturday, Dec. 7, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in Pico Canyon Hall at College of the Canyons.
Bridge to Everywhere, a world-class professional ensemble, is providing the opportunity for students to strengthen their skills of improvisation and learn what it really takes to be a professional musician.
Bridge to Everywhere Artistic Director Derrick Spiva, Jr.
Led by Artistic Director Derrick Spiva Jr., the program will consist of a rehearsal and learning segment, then an open panel discussion and performance. Parents and the public are encouraged to return at 11:30 a.m. to join in the discussion and watch Bridge to Everywhere perform several pieces, along with a combined song with student participants. The general public is invited to watch as well with $10 admission. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 5th.
Everyone is welcome to this “Visiting Artists Program” workshop, though we ask that students wishing to participate have a minimum of 2-3 years of experience with their instrument. To participate, non-SCVYO musicians will be asked to pay $20 ($10 for students with ID) in cash, credit card, or check (made out to SCVYO) the day of the event. The concert will feature a panel discussion on the importance of using music to celebrate cultural diversity – and the ways that this can encourage others to adopt this new welcoming mindset. Bridge to Everywhere’s mission is to celebrate cultural diversity by bringing people together to experience interwoven musical traditions so as to foster a more inclusive society.
The open panel discussion that will take place at 11:30AM will answer questions such as “What does it mean to be a musician in 2020?” and “How can your music make change in your community?” among many more. Feel free to bring questions of your own! Once the discussion and performance comes to a close, students will be provided with a pizza luncheon to celebrate their accomplishments.
