Laby Harmony Project of the New West Symphony provides comprehensive after-school music training to children in under-resourced and historically excluded communities. We partner with Ventura’s youth to imagine and build pathways to achieve musical dreams through a multi-year continuum of rigorous programming. Through offering tuition-free, long-term, and high-quality musical instruction and social opportunities in the heart of Ventura’s Westside, Harmony celebrates musical community and builds social equity.
