is our dream.
We at Orchestra Nova San Diego have several groundbreaking
programs that are part of our "Every Child, Every Life" philosophy. This
means that all of our programs must profoundly enrich a student's
appreciation and understanding for music in their life. This
is an ambitious and unique goal, but we have specific programs
that will accomplish this dream.
The Hunter Family Music Memory Program
This nationally recognized program that has become a phenomenon
across the country made its debut in San Diego County with
the orchestra in September 2008. Acclaimed in dozens of cities around the
country, Music Memory gives children in the 3rd through 6th grades the opportunity
to learn 16 pieces of classical music each year. This means that when
a student completes four years of this program, they will be able to identify
and appreciate 64 pieces of classical music! They will also all have the
chance to come to a live concert given by the orchestra,
where they will be tested on their knowledge and receive awards for their hard
The Orchestra Festivals
The orchestra, in conjunction with the California
Music Educators Association, presents California's only annual school orchestra
festival presented with master classes by a professional orchestra. Maestro
Jung-Ho Pak and principal members of the orchestra work intensively with teachers
and their students to help them grow stronger as conductors and musicians.
$10 Student Tickets
Orchestra Nova is proud to announce one of the most
accessible student prices in the city. For only $10, any student
(including enrolled college students with current student I.D.) can purchase
tickets for each concert. Buy early as these tickets are based upon availability.
We believe in
great music being accessible to all, regardless of financial background. If
you or your organization would like to help us achieve this dream,
