The Symphony Rocks

The Harmony Project Percussion ensemble recently performed a second rendition of “Walking on the Moon” on stage at the last New West Symphony concert of the season – “The Symphony Rocks” – opening for Stewart Copeland himself! Mr. Copeland commented on how much the kids had improved in just a month. Not many elementary school students can say they’ve opened for Stewart Copeland. Fantastic job to all involved!

Meeting our LA Counterparts!

While most of our friends were sleeping in on Saturday, the Harmony Project student committee woke up early to take a trip down to Harmony Project LA – our first time ever visiting them!

10 middle school students and 2 teachers went to observe their program, taking special note of their “Peer Mentorship” program, where older students are trained to help out in younger classes. Ventura students were paired with LA students, and we had valuable conversations, assisted in classes, played along in orchestra, and observed their most advanced ensemble. We were blown away by how well they play!

Many thanks to Harmony LA for hosting us, as well as Roadrunner Shuttle for their discounted services which made it possible for us to make the trip. It was definitely one of our highlights this year, and we are inspired to be even better musicians.
