Mission & Vision

To enhance community life by providing inclusive classical music programs, events, and performances, featuring Latino arts and culture, in order to build intercultural understanding, foster connection and engagement, and strengthen the leadership and voice of underrepresented Latino communities in the Pacific Northwest.

Our vision is that classical music programs, performances and cultural events, featuring Latinx artists and composers, serve as a bridge to cultural understanding while empowering and engaging Latinx community members of all ages, thereby strengthening their voices in civic life.
