As part of our organization’s continuing efforts to offer the community both entertaining and educational experiences through live performance, the ACC hosted this special presentation, which is presented in conjunction with The Music Center’s Arts Grown L.A., a community collaboration created to deepen and expand the reach of free artistic events and performances throughout L.A. County.
The Alley Cats are an American doo-wop group singing in a cappella. The group originated in 1987, when a concert choir program was having a variety night occurring at Fullerton College. The Alley Cats' unparalleled Doo Wop show blends America's most known and loved music with comedy and showmanship that will have your audiences begging for their return! With their signature 90-minute Doo Wop show, their unforgettable Holiday show, and their acclaimed educational programs, The Alley Cats always serve up a great time!
Arts Grown L.A., a TMC Arts program, builds on The Music Center's highly successful partnerships with community groups and local artists to offer free, family-friendly performances and artmaking experiences for all ages. In collaboration with community locations such as libraries, community centers and parks among other sites, Music Center artists bring their creativity and talents to many neighborhoods across Los Angeles County. Performances, workshops and special experiences highlight the diverse cultural traditions of the county and the world.
On Memorial Day, May 30, 2022, the beautiful Veterans' Memorial Monument and accoutrements, produced by four Eagle Scout Candidates, was unveiled and the scouts were honored. It was witnessed by a very large number of veterans, boy scouts, local dignitaries and interested citizens.
