MYCincinnati (Music for Youth in Cincinnati) is a free, daily youth orchestra program for children in Price Hill. Founded on the idea that personal transformation can be achieved by striving toward musical excellence, students enrolled in MYCincinnati have the opportunity to learn an orchestral instrument and play in an ensemble. MYCincinnati is inspired by El Sistema, Venezuela’s national youth orchestra network that uses music as a vehicle for social change.
MYCincinnati is a program of Price Hill Will, a non-profit comprehensive community development organization serving East, West, and Lower Price Hill.
