The Los Angeles County Arts Commission seeks County-based youth and adult community and professional choirs, music ensembles, folk and traditional artists and dance companies to perform in the 53rd Annual Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration on December 24, 2012. Interested artists are required to submit an electronic application, which is accessible via the Arts Commission website at www.holidaycelebration.org. Both the application and guidelines for applying are available online now. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, August 8, 2012.
The Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration is a free public event that honors the spirit of many cultures and holiday traditions through music, song and dance. The theme of this year's show is "Family Holiday Traditions." The event takes place every December 24 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the Music Center in downtown Los Angeles. The stage production is also broadcast live on KCET.
The Arts Commission encourages all Los Angeles County-based performing groups representing diverse communities, traditions and performing disciplines to apply. All performing groups are paid. Proposed programming should be suitably themed for a multi-cultural holiday production.
