Learning and Growth Beyond Glitz and Glamour


The Super Bowl is among the most watched television events in the world, with an audience of 116 million in 2016. This year, 41 young musicians from YOLA (Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles), a project of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, performed onstage with Coldplay, Bruno Mars, and Beyoncé for the Super Bowl halftime show.

Gustavo Dudamel conducted the students. Watch the flashy 13-minute performance now!
