"The Price Hill Creative Community Festival is a celebration. It is an irrefutable testament to the brilliant power of our neighborhood's young people. It is a dream, made real through imagination, cooperation, and effort."
MYCincinnati is a free, daily youth orchestra program in Price Hill. Founded on the idea that personal transformation is possible through the pursuit of musical excellence, students enrolled in MYCincinnati have the opportunity to learn an orchestral instrument and play in an ensemble. Currently, there are 120 students enrolled in MYCincinnati that meet for 2-3 hours every weekday after school. MYCincinnati is inspired by El Sistema, Venezuela's national network of youth orchestras that uses music as a vehicle for social change.
MYCincinnati is a program of Price Hill Will, a non-profit community development organization that serves the neighborhoods of East, West, and Lower Price Hill.
The Price Hill Creative Community Festival 2018 is made possible by the generous support of the following organizations.
