Hope Alive! Keeping Music in the Schools by raising funds for music education in Santa Ana is coming soon! This benefit concert pairs world-class musicians with aspiring youth artists to create an evening of inspiration and hope. Santa Ana High School Jazz Ensemble and community students will have the rare opportunity to share the stage with guest artists, Grammy nominated drummer/percussionist Sheila E and her legendary father, Pete Escovedo. Through New Hope Presbyterian Church’s partnerships with the Santa Ana Unified School District and other community organizations and businesses, Hope Alive! has grown to be an exemplary model of how community driven initiatives can help bridge the gap for our young people in the midst of tough economic times.
“We truly value our continued partnership with New Hope, and we look forward to working together each year.
