Youth Orchestra Los Angeles Performs On KCAL9

STUDIO CITY ( — Members of the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles visited KCAL9 Sunday morning for a performance.

The musicians played Danzon No. 5 by Arturo Marquez while visiting the studio.

About 700 students, ages 6-18, are part of the program, which started in 2007, according to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association's Gretchen Nielsen.

"The goal of this program is both musical but also social," Nielsen said.

"We're really trying to develop citizens of the world who have skills that are transferable to everyday life. So teamwork skills, leadership skills, compassion, knowing how to build a community within their community," she said.
