Purple Silk Music: The Purple Silk Music Education Foundation (PSMEF) is an Oakland-based nonprofit that supports music education for inner-city youth. Our programs include the Great Wall Youth Orchestra & Chorus of Laney College and the Purple Bamboo Orchestra & Chorus of Lincoln Elementary School. Lincoln is one of the only K-5 public schools in America that teaches music with Chinese instruments. The children in this program get their start by learning how to sing Do Re Mi. If they can sing on pitch, they may join the Purple Bamboo Chorus, or learn to play a music instrument.
