Santa Cecilia Arts & Learning Center

For more than two decades, Santa Cecilia Orchestra has been providing exceptional performances and education programs that are both affordable and accessible to communities throughout Los Angeles. We’ve touched the lives of more than 190,000 children and youth and welcomed thousands of families to our concerts. Serving you is a privilege that we don’t take lightly.

Now, we have a chance to take our work to a new, unprecedented level in the months and years to come. And we’re already started programs to take full advantage of this grand opportunity. We are thrilled and proud to invite you to The Santa Cecilia Arts and Learning Center.

The Santa Cecilia Arts and Learning Center is the Orchestra’s new home. A place where we can expand our current programs and build new ones. A place where we can strengthen our connections and commitment to the many communities we serve. A refuge where young people are encouraged and nurtured as they learn to navigate conflicts without violence and where they grow their skills as musicians. Look below as we have begun programs to serve every age from toddlers to seniors. Stay tuned for the announcement of even more opportunities.
