In early September, Mariachi Mestizo friends visited again to further our collaboration with a live concert benefiting Little Village Foundation at the ‘Freight’ in Berkeley. Sharing the stage with esteemed local musicians including the legendary Civil Rights activist and song writer, Betty Reid-Soskin, ELM students performed the music they had recorded a few months earlier that resulted in their first CD.

ELM at Green Music Center

On November 17, 2018 ELM joined with three other Sistema programs for the first North Bay Seminario and side-by-side with the Sonoma State Orchestra at the beautiful Weill Music Hall at the Green Music Center. Our Bartok Ensemble were at the top of their game and performed several pieces on their own before joining with the full orchestra for a rousing finale of two beloved Leonard Bernstein pieces - Mambo and Somewhere.  They looked great in their newly ELM shirts donated by our wonderful landlord, David Brown of BNC.
