Founded in 1992, the Santa Cecilia Orchestra has performed in numerous venues throughout the Los Angeles County. It has been a featured organization on The Beverly Hills Live Concert Series, California Plaza's Grand Performances and at The Ford Amphitheater concert series presented by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Founder and Director, Sonia De Leon de Vega is a member of the GPIA and her husband Rodolfo is the GPIA's Vice President. Sonia grew up in Northeast Los Angeles and is giving back so much to our community through her Discovering Music program which brings an appreciation of Classical and Choral music to our elementary and middle schools.
Recently the SCO started a program at Washington Irving Middle School to teach students how to play orchestral instruments. SCO frequently performs at Occidental College and the Center For the Arts, Eagle Rock.
They are now entering our 15th season. Through our educational and outreach programs Discovering Music and Neighborhood Concert Series we will reach thousands of students and their families this year. The orchestra provides music to 16 schools a year and has 6 children's choirs.
Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety
If you have a nuisance property in your neighborhood, most likely they are in violation of a building and safety code. If you've asked your neighbor to kindly not park their cars on their front lawn, or stack old couches in the driveway, and
they haven't complied, you may want to visit this site. In turn an inspector will visit your neighbor and ask them to kindly take care of the problem or face a fine.
