Young Artists in Harmony Artist Spotlight: Diego Rodriguez
San Diego, California
Friday, 15 September 2017 - 7:00 PM
Presenter: Art of Élan
On September 15th, Art of Élan and A Reason to Survive (ARTS) present a “Young Artists in Harmony Artist Spotlight” featuring Diego Rodriguez and the original compositions he has created over the last several years. As a 3-year participant in Art of Elan's “Young Artists in Harmony” apprenticeship program, Diego, now 23, was able to create a portfolio of musical compositions that will be featured at this one-night-only special event. This collaborative concert features musicians from Art of Élan and other guest artists, with proceeds supporting the 2017 Young Artists in Harmony program.

Rodriguez was both a student and instructor at A Reason to Survive (ARTS) from 2011-2016 and was part of the annual Young Artists in Harmony program from 2014 to 2016. When he’s not writing compositions, he’s busy attending the San Diego Mesa College music program or playing with his indie rock band Sweet Myths. He lives in El Cajon.

“Being part of the Young Artists in Harmony program has given me the opportunity to compose and experiment. I wouldn’t be pursuing a major in Music Composition if I didn’t have this kind of opportunity in the first place,” said Rodriguez.

“Diego was always one of the more motivated students we worked with at ARTS,” said Art of Élan Executive Director Kate Hatmaker. “Not only is he a gifted artist but his generosity of spirit really becomes apparent when you see him working with the younger students. He truly was a leader in the apprenticeship program and I’m thrilled that we can now ‘graduate’ him to the real world. I’ll be eager to see what’s next for him.”
