The national award winning Latino Arts Strings Program (LASP) was established in the fall of 2002 at the United Community Center (UCC) in Milwaukee. Created and directed by Dinorah Marquez, this pre-college music training program provides Latino students with instruments, music materials, individual lessons, small group and orchestra, and mariachi ensemble lessons every week. The program reaches 200 children ages five through eighteen that may otherwise never have the opportunity to receive music instruction. We're so excited to welcome them to The Morning Blend for a couple of performances!
LASP is offering Summer Workshops. For more information, visit LatinoArtsWorkshops.mivoz.com . And for more information on the program and how you can help them take groups to New York City this summer, visit LatinoArtsInc.org/Strings.htm .
