Elan Youth Arts Organization
Orlando Cazares - Director
The Élan Youth Arts Organization was founded in 2013 as an indoor percussion ensemble providing a source of music education and performance opportunity in Southern California. This 2013-2014 season, we are looking to grow into a competitive ensemble amongst our peers with the help of our talented design team and dedicated instructional staff. We serve not to only educate our own performers, but to push the limits of our art.
Our staff members teach extensively in other programs around California. These programs include drum corps, independent ensembles, as well as high school percussion and wind programs. Élan fosters a culture of advocacy for music programs and positive, competent instruction.
To put it simply, Élan is a performance ensemble, a youth education organization, and an advocate for music education everywhere.
