Join us on Friday, April 12, 2024 for our Spring Benefit, Every Child Sings. We have rebranded our flagship fundraiser, placing our choristers at the center of the event. 

The benefit will be held in the cultural hub of downtown Los Angeles, at Zipper Hall on the Colburn School campus. There will be performances by LACC’s ensembles joined by special guest artist, renowned violinist Anne Akiko Meyers. We may also be debuting our newest choristers from LACC@HOLA who are part of our inaugural cohort at Heart of Los Angeles. 

The evening begins with a concert followed by a festive after-party on the outdoor plaza of the Colburn campus. There will be delicious food paired with wines and custom cocktails. Live music and lively conversation will set the mood. 

This year, our auction and fund-a-need will be online. The bidding can begin from home and carry on through the event. There will be high-ticket items and one-of-a-kind experiences. ALL of the proceeds of our virtual paddle raise will go to support our dedicated scholarship fund: Every Child Sings. 

Your participation will directly impact our young choristers and the long-term health of our growing organization. We hope you will join us!
