Virtual Event



The Music Center’s 42nd Annual Very Special Arts Festival Goes Virtual will
transform its long-standing tradition of showcasing the talents of students of all abilities into a virtual
format for 2021. Usually a private event for K–12 schools located throughout Los Angeles County, the
online offering now gives the public a first-ever opportunity to participate and join the celebration. The fun, hour-long program will stream on The Music Center Offstage virtual platform on Friday, April 16, 2021, from 10:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m., featuring student performances, professional entertainment segments and six
participatory educational workshops. In addition, The Music Center’s 42nd Annual Very Special Arts Festival
Goes Virtual will also highlight hundreds of visual artworks created by students based on this year’s theme,
“Seeds of Kindness,” in a virtual gallery. The program will include an ASL interpreter and will be transcribed
for people with visual impairment. This free, annual inclusive event, the only student festival of its kind in
the county, celebrates the students’ artistic achievements and encourages active participation in the arts
and connection with one another as a community.
