Every spring, we Southern Californians have certain events that mark the changing of the season – the poppies blooming, the swallows returning to San Juan Capistrano…Coachella. And of course, The Blue Ribbon Children’s Festival at The Music Center! (Trust us, if you’re a 5th grade teacher in LA, this event definitely marks the coming of spring!)
For the next three days, The Music Center welcomes 18,000 fifth graders along with their teachers and parent volunteers, to come and celebrate dance, perform on the plaza, and see a live performance at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. This year, the lucky kids get to see a preview of Paul Taylor Dance Company, before their public performances begin this weekend. Celebrating it’s 44th year, you can see how this annual festival has become a highlight of the spring season for all of here at 135 Grand Avenue….
