"Youth Orchestra L.A.," also known as YOLA, is a music program for children in underserved neighborhoods of Los Angeles, primarily in Central and South L.A. Under the direction of incoming LA Philharmonic Music Director Gustavo Dudamel and LA Philharmonic President Deborah Borda, the mission of Youth Orchestra L.A. is to put instruments in the hands of children and give them the best quality instruction by creating new and leveraging ensemble programs, all free of cost. Another key goal in cultivating the student orchestra members is to instill life-long values, such as discipline and teamwork.

The Mount Wilson Observatory, located in the San Gabriel Mountains, is a world-class historical landmark celebrating its centennial anniversary. Some say this is where modern astronomy was born. Mount Wilson is geared-up to continue its discoveries well into the 21st century and beyond.

The observatory is open to visitors every day from the first weekend of April through the last weekend of November, weather permitting.
