Two Awards In One Week for Silverlake Conservatory

Saturday, July 29, 2017

Local music education nonprofit Silverlake Conservatory of Music, which moved to Los Feliz from its former Sunset Junction location last October, was named “Nonprofit of the Year” by California State Assemblymember Laura Friedman late last month, just days after receiving an architecture award from the Los Angeles Business Council (LABC).

Friedman awarded the music school, co-founded by Michael Balzary, better known as “Flea” of the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, on June 28th for making high quality music lessons available to children whose families would otherwise be unable to afford them.

“The Conservatory has opened the door to the arts for countless children,” said Friedman in a written statement. “For 16 years, they’ve fostered a love of music, imagination, and exploration in their students, teachers, and our community.”
