Project Messiah

logo-mwamMusic with a Mission

The Midnight Mission hosts Music With a Mission (MWAM) to entertain and inspire those living on Skid Row. Music is a survival tactic for many people in dealing with life’s difficulties. MWAM is aimed at bringing our community together through music. MWAM is quite simple. Musicians bring their instruments and play for our homeless and near-homeless guests. It is an intimate setting, so musicians have the opportunity to interact with our guests, answer questions and/or talk about music and its history. We encourage musicians to invite their fan base so they can engage and enjoy music with individuals they would not normally encounter in their daily lives.

Upcoming Events

Free, open-to-public performances begin at 1:30pm at The Midnight Mission.

People Assisting the Homeless

PATH Ventures is helping end homelessness by building affordable rental homes that provide homeless and low-income individuals and families with the support they need to succeed. Street Symphony ensembles perform regularly at a number of PATH facilities throughout Los Angeles County, reaching families, children, and individuals emerging from homelessness.

Education Based Incarceration

As of July 2016, Street Symphony ensembles have presented 76 events for individuals experiencing incarceration at county jail facilities, including Lynwood Jail in Compton and Men’s Central Jail and Twin Towers Jail in downtown Los Angeles. Events for education-based incarceration programs include dialogue, performance and storytelling, and are often introduced by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Rand Rubin, an amateur violist and guitarist who also serves on the Board of Directors of Street Symphony. Street Symphony is grateful to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for their continued partnership and access to the incarcerated community.
