Music at St. Matthew's gratefully acknowledges the support of the L.A. County Arts Commission

Thank you to everyone who has helped us grow and thrive over 30 years of wonderful music. It’s quite an accomplishment and you should be very proud. As we begin this Anniversary Season, it is clear that all of us involved in the Music Guild – subscribers, orchestra, board members, and audience – have a passion for music. Your support has transformed that passion into thirty years of great music, and we look forward to many more!

So I ask you, what is your musical passion? What is it about music that touches your soul? Why do you come to concerts? Why do you subscribe? What compels you to donate so that we can engage talented soloists and commission and perform new music?

Members of the orchestra gave some interesting and moving responses to this question. Many trace their passion for music back to their youth and family traditions.  For others, their passion is more idealistic or philosophical.

Please tell us. Share your thoughts when you subscribe by mail or online. Visit our Facebook page or send an email to info@MusicGuildOnline.org. We would like to know what moves you and, unless you request otherwise, we’d like to share your passion for music with others during our Anniversary Season.

We have a great 30th season for you. Please enjoy the music!

Tom Neenan, Music Director

COMMUNITY OUTREACH
Valor Academy

Fixty-six scholars from Valor Academy Charter School in Arleta visited the Music Guild on Friday, June 7, for the final concert of the 2012/13 season.

Musicians from the Chamber Orchestra at St. Matthew's have been making regular visits to Valor for the past three years. Our June 2013 event was the first opportunity to bring students to a Music Guild event at St. Matthew's Church. Participants were selected by the faculty on the basis of academic achievement, leadership, and musical interest.

Valor Academy is a charter school in the northern San Fernando Valley. They employ rigorous academics and frequent assessment and evaluation in order to prepare the students to pursue professional careers. Valor believes that regardless of obstacles presented by socio-economic status, ethnicity or language, the students can succeed and move on to virtually any four-year university they choose.
