Love & Memory

In the past few years, Mrs. Jessica Chen and her husband, Leo, have been teaching at St. Matthew's Catholic School.  Prior to her passing, Jessica spoke of her wish to keep our Strings Program at St. Matthew's active and growing. With the help of Rebecca and Jia Jia, Leo continues to teach the Strings Program at St. Matthew's. We are extremely grateful. Jessica will continue to be present in our lives through this music program dedicated to our children.


All proceeds go to the purchasing of instruments for St. Matthew's School. The expense of rentals and repairs have been supplied by our selfless teachers Leo Chen, Rebecca Tseng, Jia Jia Farr, and through generous donors--like you! Use this link to make a contribution, and to impact this symphonic program.
