“I’m very pleased that Kayla Quijano was chosen as the first prize recipient of the 2019 YACC,” shares Donato Cabrera, music director for the Las Vegas Philharmonic. “The experience she will have in performing this piece on the 2019-20 Youth Concert Series with the Las Vegas Philharmonic will be invaluable.”
Cox’s support of The Las Vegas Philharmonic is part of the Company’s longstanding support of the arts – in particular, art education for youth – and is part of the Cox Hearts for Arts program. This is the fifth year of a five-year pledge by Cox Communications of Las Vegas to support the program.
About the Las Vegas Philharmonic:
The Las Vegas Philharmonic, led by Music Director, Donato Cabrera, established its presence in Southern Nevada in 1998. The mission of the Las Vegas Philharmonic is to inspire a lifelong appreciation of music through performances and educational experiences for our community that enhance the lives of our residents and the culture of our city.
Music education and outreach are the cornerstones of the Philharmonic’s commitment to community. Our Youth Concert Series brings more than 23,000 children annually into the concert hall for a vital music education program, and our Cox Communications Young Artists’ Concerto Competition recognizes and encourages emerging talent among Nevada youth in the area of music performance. Launched in 2018, our Music Van mobile outreach program allows us to bring music education and experiences out into the community and engage our neighbors in new and different ways through customizable activations and experiences.
Our season of concerts showcases local talents alongside stellar nationally and internationally known guest artists on the magnificent Reynolds Hall stage. At the orchestra’s core are 76 contracted professional musicians, many of whom are esteemed educators who also perform in other professional productions in Las Vegas, bringing depth and variety to the organization.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Philharmonic’s community, education and artistic programs are made possible by the generous donations and support of individuals and corporations. To join us in our mission or learn more, visit lvphil.org or call 702.258.5438.
