Your school could be eligible for a grant towards a performing arts assembly from The Music Center!

August 26, 2015  ::   Music Center on Tour brings the immediacy of live performance to schools across Los Angeles County. These performances reflect and celebrate the finest artistic contributions of the world’s cultures – from the colorful regional dances of Mexico to the pulsating rhythms of Brazil; from the exquisite music of the Middle East to the golden harmonies of 20th Century America. Assemblies include written teacher preparation materials that contain background information on the artist and the specific performance as well as activities for the classroom and connections to multiple curricular areas.

You can learn more about these performance at:
