Music in the Garden is Coming March 1!

Peninsula Committee Los Angeles Philharmonic is proud to announce that its community outreach program, Music in the Garden, will be held on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at South Coast Botanic Garden from 12:00pm to 4:00pm.  Featuring student musicians from the Palos Verdes Peninsula and the South Bay, the program is designed to create public audiences for young musicians and to showcase the music programs of area schools.  Coinciding with the Cherry Blossom Festival that weekend at the Garden, Music in the Garden is reminiscent of the old Music Fair which was put on by the Committee from 1972 to 2008.  The popular Music Mobile van will be on display and will feature hands-on demonstrations of orchestra instruments. Face painters, strolling musicians and a food truck will add to the festivities.

The schools that will be participating this year are:

Narbonne High School, Lomita
Palos Verdes High School
Palos Verdes Intermediate School
Peninsula High School
Ridgecrest Intermediate School
Rolling Hills Prep and Renaissance Schools
South High School, Torrance
