The biggest acts from the music industry perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. This year the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (YOLA) is set to headline alongside Coldplay.
“We congratulate Gustavo Dudamel and all the young musicians of YOLA, for realizing the dream for every child to learn and grow with music,” said Mary Luehrsen, Executive Director of The NAMM Foundation.
Viewership for the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 is expected to be over 118 million. Super Bowl 50 will include performances by Beyonce, Bruno Mars, and Coldplay.
Gustavo Dudamel's Youth Orchestra LA (YOLA) program - inspired by Venezuela's revolutionary El Sistema - provides free instruments, intensive music training, and academic support to students from underserved neighborhoods, empowering them to become vital citizens, leaders, and agents of change.
