Santa Cecilia Orchestra

Hello Bloggers, welcome!

For today's post I'm going to share with you a little piece of heaven located right here in Los Angeles, California.  And I'll do it in two languages, WOWZERS!

I'm bilingual and my second language is Spanish.....Surprise!.   While I speak Spanish really well, writing it is a whole different can of worms.  I'll try my very best and hope not to offend anyone (blushing).

Hola! Bienvenidos a mi blog!
Hoy les contare de un pedacito del cielo aqui en Los Angeles, California.  Y hoy escribire en dos idiomas, que barbara! Soy bilingue y mi segundo idioma es Espanol.  El Espanol lo hablo sin problemas pero para escribirlo? nel pastel, ahi cambia totalmente el panorama. Pero lo hare lo mas vien que pueda y perdon por lo mal escrito, espero no ofender.  

If you have been reading my posts, you know that I'm a lover of classical music.  Music from genius composers like; Brahms, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Wagner, Haydn, Tchaikovsky, to name a few, just fills my spirit with magic.  It takes me to the highest cloud and wraps me in an endless wondrous trance giving me enormous pleasure.

Si han estado leyendo mis publicaciones, usted sabra que amo la musica clasica.  Musica de compositores genios como; Brahms, Chopin, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Wagner,  Haydn, Tchaikovsky, para nombrar algunos, me llenan el espiritu de magia.  Me llevan a la nuve mas alta y me envuelven en un trance sin fin dandome enorme placer.  
I was recently contacted by a representative from the Santa Cecilia Orchestra and asked to attend one of their concertos and write a review.  I was so excited, this was right up my alley, how did they know I love classical music? hhhmmm??

Recientemente me invitaron a un concierto de la Orquesta Santa Cecilia.  Estaba tan feliz con la invitacion, como se dieron cuenta que amo la musica clasica? hhhmmmm?? 

Unfortunately, I couldn't attend on the night of the show.  However, I was happy that I had found out about Santa Cecilia Orchestra because I had not heard of them before.  I did a little research and decided to spread the news.  I cannot wait to attend their concerts and get to know them a little better.

Desafortunadamente, no podia asistir la noche de la presentacion.  Pero estaba contenta con solo de escuchar de la Orquesta Santa Cecilia por primera ves.   Despues de buscar mas informacion sobre la Orquesta, decidi promover la noticia.

The Santa Cecilia Orchestra was founded in 1992.  They have an educational and outreach program called, Discovering Music. The program has reached over 40,000 students in over 35 different schools.  They have free violin lessons and a mentorship program.  What a great way to give back to the community, I truly admire them for that.

La Orchesta Santa Cecilia comenzo en 1992.  Ofrecen un programa educativo para alcanzar a estudiantes que se llama, Descubriendo Musica.  El programa ha alcanzado a mas de 40,000 estudiantes en mas de 35 escuelas diferentes.  Tanbien ofrecen lecciones gratis de violin y tienen un programa de tutoria para estudiantes.  Que gran manera de invertir en el futuro de la comunidad.  Los admiro y respeto por esa inversion.
