Art All Around featuring Harmony Stockton
1:30 - 3:00 PM
Fun art activities will be happening throughout the Museum, including performances by the young musicians from Marshall School’s Harmony Stockton.
Taking inspiration from Venezuela’s highly successful El Sistema, a national system of youth orchestras, Harmony Stockton provides free, intensive, daily music education for at-risk children at Marshall Elementary School in south Stockton to help them improve their academic performance and develop the personal habits that lead to success.
The program is a collaboration between the Stockton Symphony, University of the Pacific, Stockton Unified School District and the United Way of San Joaquin. Through rigorous study of music, students learn work ethic, cooperation, goal setting, leadership and pride within the community of a string orchestra. There is no charge for students to join Harmony Stockton, and a violin is provided to each participating student.
Activities are included with price of admission and all materials are provided. No reservations are required; just come and have fun! For more information, call (209) 940-6315 or e-mail email@example.com.
