YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) is the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s youth development initiative establishing music education programs in underresourced communities across Los Angeles. YOLA at Inglewood, housed at the Beckmen YOLA Center, marks YOLA’s fifth youth orchestra endeavor, the first YOLA program in the Inglewood community. The Beckmen YOLA Center (BYC) is scheduled to open in January 2021 and is YOLA’s first purpose-built site, designed for intensive music education and performance. The site will house the YOLA at Inglewood program, “cross-site” work between all YOLA site programs, as well as a variety of distance learning and professional development opportunities for local to international students, educators, and administrators.Position Elements:
