The San Diego Symphony’s annual January Festival returns in its fourth year entitled, Hearing the Future. Throughout the festival, which runs January 9 - 27, 2019, the organization explores and celebrates the power of music and art to give voice to the evolution and revolutions in the world at large. The festival, curated by composer-conductor Matthew Aucoin (b.1990), will shine a spotlight on the music being made today – from composers and performers who are still in high school, to a 90-year-old jazz master. The festival will also explore the way music from the past — from Haydn, Beethoven and Berlioz to the creators of African-American spirituals — engaged with the most urgent issues of their time.

Art of Élan’s “Young Artists in Harmony” program is offered in partnership with the nationally recognized A Reason To Survive (ARTS), an organization that believes in the power of the arts and creativity to literally transform lives – especially those of kids facing adversity. Consisting of weekly workshops where ARTS Empower students have the opportunity to be mentored by Art of Élan musicians and festival curator Matthew Aucoin through unique apprenticeships, the residency culminates in a concert that showcase original compositions the students create over the 10-week residency, performed by Art of Élan musicians.
