Pacific Symphony arts-X-press Student Life


A Transformational Experience

Imagine a place where budding young artists and creative thinkers come together to explore the arts, nourish their sense of self and make lasting friendships.

At arts-X-press, you’ll spend five days immersed in the arts. You’ll sleep in the dorms and eat meals in the cafeteria at Concordia University Irvine. You’ll spend your days exploring different art forms in professional arts spaces with some of the best arts professionals in the region. You’ll be challenged to express yourself creatively and collaborate with your fellow arts-X-pressers who come from all over Southern California.

“I made so many friends: my confidence is boosted. Everyone was so friendly and fun. My workshops were a blast and I have grown and learned so much!”arts-X-press student

Self-Expression - Confidence - Community

Arts-X-press is a safe haven for self-expression. We create an environment that values each student’s individuality and we cultivate students’ ability to appreciate the magic in life. By the end of arts-X-press, our students feel more confident in themselves and leave with the courage to make meaningful contributions to their communities.

Experience the magic of arts-X-press!
