Los Angeles Korean American organizations are celebrating the holiday season with Koreatown seniors.

Hayfield Youth Orchestra, a volunteer-based group of Korean American students, visited the Wilshire Adult Day Care Center Monday to put on a Christmas concert for 130 seniors led by conductor Kim Yong-jae.

Orchestra leader Grace Kwon said students have been volunteering around the region after being taught how to play.

This is already the orchestra’s third end-of-the-year performance, Kwon said.

Wilshire Adult Day Care Center Activity Coordinator Choi In-ja said the orchestra visits each year during Christmas or Independence Day to bring cheer to the center’s seniors.

At Mid-Wilshire Health Care Center, five members of the Korean American Mothers Association brought food for about 40 seniors.

“Our association has volunteered at the health care center five to six times a year for 25 years,” said Tina Lee, association president. “We provide homemade food for the elderly and feel it’s worthwhile to spend time with them.”
