FUNDRAISER: Stars for the Arts, Eastside Music Project

Featuring: Will-Dog Abers from Ozomatli and LAMusArt students from our Latin Jazz Ensemble

Celebrating the sounds of LA’s Eastside Latin Music Landscape from 1940 to today, this special performance is part of our initiatives for libraries and schools to receive free music education resources during their hybrid learning period.  The evening will feature music by Lalo Guerrero, Tierra, Los Lobos, Ozomatli, Quetzal and other titans of the music industry interpreted by our LAMusArt Jazz ensemble.  Special performances from select band members will enhance the evening and raise much needed funds to sustain free and affordable music and arts education on the eastside.
