The Holidays Concert of music will showcase classics such as L.v.

The Corona Youth Music Project was founded to empower youth, fight poverty, and promote social inclusion through music education and performance. It is the first organization in Queens that is part of “€œEl Sistema,”€ a global movement of music for social change. Beginning in 2010 with a fifteen student bucket band, the Corona Youth Music Project has since grown to include 200 students in its two orchestras, four orchestra initiation modules, and children’s chorus. All classes and instruments are offered free of charge.
