Excellence and Innovation

Our History

Since Founding String Project Los Angeles (SPLA) in 2008 we’ve been active in bringing creative empowerment to young string players regardless of background and socioeconomic level independently and through partnerships with organizations including The Young Musicians Foundation, Education Through Music - LA, LA’s best to name a few.  We’ve conducted over 200 in-school residencies including some of the most underprivileged inner city communities in LA.  We’ve also partnered with members of The Colburn School, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and to raise money for causes such as Homeless Students, Victims of gun violence, and disaster relief. As musicians who’ve had our lives changed by guest artists, we are passionate about providing the same experience for our community.  While prestigious university music departments in Southern California emphasize their resources only on the most famous classical artists, we've committed bootstrapping and independently hosting and producing masterclasses over the past 12 years with a virtual “Who's Who” of the creative string world, earning the title from Strings Magazine as “One of the top 5 reasons to study music in Los Angeles.”
