PSOC Gives Youth Center a Gift of Music

The Orange County Philharmonic Society (PSOC) recently donated a legato digital piano and participated in the Youth Center’s after-school program. On behalf of PSOC, Virginia Fraser and Lizzie Schmidt presented music gifts to youth center staff and volunteers.

A two-year study by researchers at the Brain and Creativity Institute (BCI) at the University of Southern California found that exposure to music and musical instruction included language development, sound, reading skills, and speech recognition. The Youth Center has been providing music instruction to local children for over 30 years and wants all children to enjoy the educational benefits of music.

“Music is part of the Youth Center’s program every Wednesday,” said Lina Lumme, Executive Director of the Youth Center. “This digital piano will allow us to host musical talent shows for children,” she continued.

The Orange County Philharmonic Society offers a free youth education program for 160,000 elementary, junior high and high school students annually. There are 21 committees throughout Orange County. These award-winning programs have been made available to Los Alamitos Unified students through the Seal Beach Philharmonic Committee. Prior to COVID-19, members volunteered as Docents for music programs and raised funds throughout the year to enable these programs. Even during this volatile period of COVID-19, PSOC continues to work to enrich students with virtual youth music education programs.
