On May 14, 2018 the Pico-Union Neighborhood Council approved funding to support the Mariachi Corazon de Magnolia. A cultural institution funded in 1995 that since the beginning has been instructing Magnolia Avenue Elementary School students in the heart of Pico-Union. The Mariachi Corazon de Magnolia fosters a place where all people, who appreciate music, are welcomed. The Mariachi Corazon de Magnolia features the talents of students in grades 3rd through 6th from the immediate school community, and neighboring cities. The Pico-Union Neighborhood Council is proud to support this very important cultural institution that promotes a sense of belonging, a love of music, but most importantly builds a community for all Pico-Union constituents.
