"It’s Your Turn" is the theme of the 50th anniversary celebration of the country’s largest multicultural holiday show, the Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration. Patrons are invited to carol and dance on the Music Center Plaza before the show, while the six-hour spectacular on the Dorothy Chandler stage will include surprise opportunities for audience interaction.
The Holiday Celebration celebrates 50 years of seasonal joy from 3:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 24 at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion of the Music Center. The show is a holiday gift from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to the community. Admission to all activities and the show is free as is the parking at the Music Center.
Among the groups performing, four are based in the Fourth District: the Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers, the Christian’s Community Center Cathedral Choir, Klezmer Juice, and Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea.
This year, there are more ways than ever to enjoy this music and dance extravaganza featuring over 1,000 performers. The L.A. County Arts Commission, the show’s producer, is expanding the reach and format of this popular holiday staple. As it has for 44 of the show’s 50 years, KCET will broadcast the show live, and it will also be screened on the JumboTron on the Music Center Plaza. For the first time, the celebration will be streamed live on the Web via kcet.org. The audio portion will be simulcast on KPFK, 90.7 FM on the dial.
