Santa Ana Strings

A 6-month Santa Ana Strings pilot program was launched in January 2015 in partnership with long time Heartstrings partner, the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Ana. The program provides six hours of violin instruction and mentorship five days a week to students in grades 2-6. Symphony violist Adam Neeley has joined the program as Teaching Artist and is leading the weekly classroom instruction component, with six additional Symphony violinists and violists joining him once a week for small clinic workshops and large group ensembles.

Participating students receive intensive violin instruction in both intimate and large group settings, a violin to take home, academic tutoring and frequent performance opportunities many of which are in conjunction with Pacific Symphony concerts.
