The Harmony Project Riverside Youth Orchestra will open for world renowned pianist Mike Garson at the Riverside County Medical Association Physician Musician Benefit Concert on October 25th! If you are a David Bowie fan you may recognize Mike Garson as his pianist on many albums and tours.
What an exciting experience for the youth of RAA - thank you for helping us bring opportunities like these to life for them!
Our Instrument Drive was a great success - we raised $15,000 to help bring music to the youth in our program this summer.
