Founded in 1968 as a summer outreach program, Young Musicians Choral Orchestra has transformed the lives of over 3,000 Bay Area Youth. Under the leadership of Executive Director Daisy Newman, who took the helm in 2003, the program erupted from a modest youth music program into a national model, providing a rigorous and robust combination of musical training, academic reinforcement, and personal development for low-income, underprivileged children. YMCO's annual Big Band concert, which takes place March 26 in San Leandro, is led by "The King of Swing" himself, Geechi Taylor, who joins hosts Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 3/18 at 9 pm.
