Each year, PSHA awards gifts and grants to a broad and diverse list of non-profit organizations to support their efforts in the community. We underwrite concerts to ensure that the joy of live music is made available to a wide range of audiences. We support choirs, musical theater, school marching bands, dance programs, opera, jazz bands and orchestras.
Since 1984, promising young musicians between the ages of 16-24 have been competing annually for monetary awards in the categories of woodwinds, brass and strings. Nearly $600,000 in prize money has been awarded to assist them in furthering their musical education.
Created by PSHA in 1971 and now produced in partnership with Pasadena Conservatory of Music, the Music Mobile™ is a hands-on, award-winning program that is presented to third grade students. It provides an introduction to classical music and the opportunity to play a selection of instruments and be part of a simulated orchestra. More than 125,000 students have participated since its inception.
Begun in 1953, more than 250,000 fourth grade students have attended this annual free concert designed to weave musical concepts into an appealing program that is presented at the Walt Disney Concert Hall by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
