Programs

Street Symphony works with key organizational partners to present regular monthly engagements for communities affected by homelessness and incarceration in LA County. Our projects create platforms for oppressed communities to find and share their artistic, human voices. Our educational programs focus on creating and sustaining environments for professional and emerging artists to move into vital, powerful roles as agents of cultural change through citizen artistry.

The Messiah Project

Initiated by a California Arts Council grant in 2015, the Messiah Project is an annual community sing-along celebration held at The Midnight Mission in Skid Row. This culminating yearly event is presented after a series of free community workshops held throughout Skid Row. The Messiah Project presents excerpts of Handel’s beloved Messiah alongside works commissioned for and created by members of the Skid Row community, with community members as soloists, choristers and participants alongside Street Symphony musicians from the LA Philharmonic, LA Master Chorale and Colburn School.
