Amidst the bustling traffic of The Broad and MOCA Grand lies a summer urban oasis of music, dance, multimedia, and spoken word where shows are always free and open to the public. Hailed as the “Best Free Outdoor Summer Concert Series,” Grand Performances returns this June for its 30th Anniversary season with an international and local lineup of artists that reflect the diversity and cultural depth of Los Angeles.
On Saturday, July 2 at 8:00pm, the Armenian super group 1 To 3 presents boundary pushing, entertaining, experimental, and elevated chamber jazz from revered Armenian virtuosos Arto Tunçboyacıyan (Armenian Navy Band), pianist Vardan Ovsepian, and cellist Artyom Manukyan.
A stage set into a waterfall at Grand Avenue’s California Plaza comes alive with a state of the art sound and lighting system that rivals any venue in the area. Audience members picnic, dance, or simply sit and enjoy the performances amongst the tall office and residential skyscrapers and the stars. Performances run from June 10 through August 21.
Grand Performances programs are free and open to the public at California Plaza, 350 S. Grand Avenue, Los Angeles. For information on seating, parking, public transportation and more, visit www.grandperformances.org.
