Mina, 2nd Grader, Violin

You’d never know that Mina has only been playing the violin for a year. She has made incredible progress since she joined HOLA’s Youth Orchestra Los Angeles, but she’s ready to move on. The next conquest – the cello! She loves coming to YOLA at HOLA, especially to see all of her friends – Andrea, Aubrey, Diane, Julia…Mina loves performing with the orchestra, especially The Blue Danube. When she’s not at HOLA, Mina loves to read and cook in her pretend kitchen. At the ripe old age of 7, Mina’s favorite book is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.

“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.
