Beyond striving for artistic excellence, musicians are responsible for showing their communities that classical music is a living, breathing art form, which knows no linguistic, ethnic, educational, or cultural barriers. On stage, this translates to making the kind of music that reaches out to the audience and has the ability to transcend. Off stage, this means enriching communities by engaging and educating.

Ms. dePasquale began participating in the Philadelphia Orchestra Sound All Around series at age six with her mother, Gloria dePasquale, which fostered a deep understanding and appreciation of community engagement. While she was a student at the Colburn School Conservatory of Music, Ms. dePasquale served as a mentor for the Youth Orchestra Los Angeles program. As First Prize winner of the 2010 Irving M. Klein International String Competition, Ms. dePasquale has given numerous educational presentations in schools throughout the greater Los Angeles and Bay Areas. Most recently, Ms. dePasquale was selected to participate in the Juilliard Global Residency with Santa Marcelina Cultura in São Paolo, Brazil. Additionally, Ms. dePasquale frequently pairs outreach and educational programs alongside solo recitals and concerto appearances.
