Irvine Valley College Academic Senate Presents An Evening with Vijay Gupta, Founder of Street Symphony
Vijay Gupta is a violinist and educator whose efforts to merge music with mental health are changing the world, note by note. Named a MacArthur Fellow for “providing musical enrichment and valuable human connection to the homeless, incarcerated and other under-resourced communities in Los Angeles,” Gupta is the founder of Street Symphony – a musical advocacy program that empowers citizen-musicians by engaging with communities experiencing extreme poverty, incarceration, and homelessness. The results have been extraordinary.
