HOLA on YouTube

Manny, 6th Grader, Trombone

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I want to be a conductor, or perhaps a lawyer like my dad.

What grade are you in?

I’m in the 6th grade at LAAAE, so I don’t have far to go to get to HOLA.

What do you like most about HOLA?

There are so many things I really like, but at the top of my list are Mr. Robert, who helps me with my homework, and learning how to play “Hot Cross Buns” on the recorder.

I heard you just won an award?

Yeah, I recently got two medals for getting the top grades in Math and Language Arts.

“52 Stories” profiles HOLA students in the Youth Orchestra LA program, a partnership with the LA Phil to bring orchestral music to inner-city youth.
