The Children’s Recording Arts Alliance announces their fourth annual family concert celebrating this year's children's album nominees for The GRAMMYs. The concert, which is open to the public, will once again take place at The Mint LA (6010 W Pico in Los Angeles), on Saturday, February 9th, 11 am to 12 noon.
All five of this year's GRAMMY nominees for best album for children will perform:
All net proceeds from the concert will go to support Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation (http://www.mhopus.org/) , which keeps music alive in schools by donating musical instruments to under-funded music programs. The 2011 children’s GRAMMY nominee concert netted $2000 for the organization.
Super DJs Absolutely Mindy and Kenny Curtis from Sirius XM Kids Place Live host a live remote radio broadcast of the concert, airing nationwide.
Presenting sponsor of the concert is L.A. Parent magazine, with significant support from The Mint, Berklee College of Music, Community Music LLC, To Market Kids, Clamorhouse Kids and Sugar Mountain PR.
Tickets ($12 in advance, $15 day of show) are available now:
These annual concerts sell out, so advance ticket purchase is strongly advised.
A children’s recording arts networking luncheon will follow the concert, at the Mint. This industry-only event is presented by NAPPA Awards.
