Our Name

We chose the term Verdugo as an all-inclusive reference to the original Verdugo Rancho that covered the area from the San Gabriel to the San Fernando Valleys in Southern California.  We chose this name specifically to encompass the myriad communities we serve. Our VYMA Music Project focuses entirely on Pasadena, but our Youth Orchestra programs draw young musicians from all across the region representing 47 schools from 18 Southern California communities, including: Arcadia Burbank Eagle Rock Glendale La Canada La Crescenta Los Angeles Monrovia Pasadena San Gabriel San Marino South Pasadena Sunland Tujunga  Read More
