Mid-City Community Music (MCCM)

MCCM provides life-changing music and art programs to San Diego’s Mid-City youth, with a focus on system and justice-involved teens in City Heights and Barrio Logan. MCCM provides teaching artists who take music, arts, and entrepreneurship workshops to students in San Diego’s Juvenile Court System who are incarcerated, on probation, or referred by social services. Workshops focus on career readiness skills like digital literacy, graphic design, and small business management and give justice involved youth a chance to reimagine themselves and their futures.


Dirty Cello

Cello like you've never heard before! Combine the virtuosic wail of Jimi Hendrix, the soul of BB King, and the fire of Bill Monroe, and add a whole lot of cello, and you get the Dirty Cello band. Dirty Cello performs all over the world, from Iceland to Israel, from Scottish castles to underground caves presenting an energetic and wild show that's been described as,"Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical." by Oakland Magazine.
