Complementing the Museum’s exhibit Clyfford Still, Art, and the Young Mind, the March Music in the Galleries will feature young musicians from El Sistema Colorado, an organization that empowers students from some of Denver’s lowest income communities by offering immersive music training and vital life skills.
This performance will showcase the ensemble Duo Issen, featuring violinists Julia Taylor and Joy Yamaguchi, both El Sistema Teaching Artists, Quartet Maravilla, an upper level El Sistema student quartet, will also perform. Join us in celebrating the joy that music brings to these young leaders and musicians!
