Uplift Through The Arts:
Community Renewal Plan

The Music Center is one of the largest and most highly regarded performing arts centers in the nation. Our mission is to champion the arts in Los Angeles for all people and to connect them with one another and with art that can enrich their lives.

In response to the unprecedented health and economic crises created by COVID-19, and the desire to address racial inequalities, The Music Center developed its Community Renewal Plan to respond to these pressing issues. Through this timely and essential work, we are reinvigorating our vision to serve all Angelenos while expanding our civic and arts leadership. The Music Center has established a fund to support this critical three-phase renewal plan.
