Laby Harmony Project graduating class

Congratulations to the graduating students of the Laby Harmony Project of the New West Symphony! In 2011, the Laby Harmony Project of Ventura got its start with 15 orange Home Depot buckets. This year, the first class of Harmony Project students graduated high school, and 100% of them are moving on to study at local colleges, the first in their families to get a tertiary education!

At our Battle of the Sections event last week, New West Symphony was honored to help pay for their books with a $500 scholarship each. It’s all thanks to you, our loyal supporters! Watch the announcement from the live online event.

Your support of the Symphony, our education programs, and our upcoming return to the concert hall is greatly appreciated. Learn more about how you can help.

Pomp and Circumstance, performed by Harmony teachers!

High school and college graduates all over the world were unable to have a traditional graduation ceremony this year due to pandemic safety measures. That means no in-person ceremony with cap and gown, and no tear-jerking favorite, Sir Edward Eldar’s Pomp and Circumstance.

But the teachers of the Laby Harmony Project of the New West Symphony prepared a special tribute to their students. They remotely recorded and assembled this performance of that music we all know and love as a send-off to their graduating students.

People just like you have supported Harmony Project teachers and helped supply instruments and curriculum to Ventura students. We appreciate your continued support, as lessons have transitioned to online video calls and the New West Symphony prepares to safely resume in-person performances. Join us now.
