Misha Khalikulov, one of the cello teachers at Harmony Project Bay Area, will perform with his musical family. Misha's family immigrated from the former Soviet Union in 1990 (when Misha and his brother were still toddlers), leaving behind everything they knew for the hope of a better life. Come enjoy a night of Russian music and Russian-inspired Broadway favorites, as Misha and his family tell the story of how they immigrated to the United States, with music as their guide and the community as their strength. Concert program will include works by composers such as Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Borodin, Rubinstein and much more.

Harmony Project Bay Area (HPBA) provides high intensity after-school music education at no cost to low income families or the school. In 2016, they became an affiliate of Harmony Project of America. It is led by the flagship program in Los Angeles, serving 3000 children and recognized with 3 national awards as one of the most effective arts-based youth development programs in the nation. Students participating in the program through high school attend college at twice the rate of peers from the same inner-city neighborhoods.
In addition to the joy of learning an instrument and appreciating quality music, HPBA strives to improve students’ skills for academic and life success, such as problem solving, creative thinking, focus, and collaboration. These benefits are achieved through concentrated effort to master an instrument, belonging to a positive community (the orchestra), working towards shared goals (performances), and striving for excellence.
