Mitzi Mock


Earlier this month, performers across the globe came together for the One World: Together at Home concert. It was a reminder that, even when we’re physically apart, music has the ability to connect us. With that sentiment in mind, students in Nueva’s Menuhin-Dowling program invite you to join them for a virtual musical feast.

“We miss performing for our friends and teachers at school and look forward to the day when we can play music with our friends,” writes program director Mandy Chiu. “Until then, we will find other means to deliver music to reconnect us, and—most important of all—bring a smile to your day!
