Heinrich Heine stated, “Where words leave off, music begins.” There simply are no words to describe how music completes a large part of our life journey. Music is universal, personal, magical, powerful, subtle, and romantic; music has the capacity to move and change us.
The world of music is a central part of our guest and inspiring educator, Maestra Sonia Marie De Leon de Vega. Through her lifelong passion, Sonia has introduced and touched the hearts and minds of children and their families in struggling neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The impact of centuries old music Maestra De Leon de Vega conducts for her audience, most experiencing live classical performance for the first time, has had a profound impact on even the toughest teens struggling to find meaning in their lives.
Sonia’s musical journey through her “Discovering Music” program and the Santa Cecilia Orchestra is bringing musical balance and harmony to the greater Los Angeles community. Join us and hear how Sonia can instill inspiration without a single spoken word. Follow the baton and help us celebrate our unsung hero!
