Price Hill-based MYCincinnati (Music for Youth in Cincinnati) is a renowned free youth orchestra program for urban children. They learn violin, viola, cello or bass through a system that seeks social change. El Sistema, Venezuela’'s revolutionary youth orchestra program, inspired MYCincinnati. Composer-performer, teacher and violinist Eddy Kwon directs the program.

Violinist Eddy Kwon is one of the current Cincinnati Arts Ambassadors and the results of his award will be on display this month when the MYCincinnati Ambassador Ensemble, made up of young people from the MYCincinnati Youth Orchestra where he works perform several concerts around town. Stuart Holman talks with Eddy Kwon about the ambassadorship, his work with young musicians in Price Hill and his band, The Happy Maladies.
