“To provide the experience of the power of music, brilliantly played by our Pacific Symphony musicians, magnificently led by Conductor Carl St.Clair, in the inspirational atmosphere of Segerstrom Concert Hall is so moving. Most of our clients have never had an opportunity to breathe in the richness of all this before. What Heartstrings does is make it possible for so many of the men and women we serve at Working Wardrobes to have this opportunity, and for that we thank you from our hearts!”
-Jerri Rosen, CEO/Founder
