MEET THE MUSIC
This free music education and music making program includes concerts, in-school lessons, and an LA Opera performance. We teach basic music skills to over 1,600 San Pedro & Wilmington LAUSD students, spurring academic achievement and engaging young minds. Meet the Music has three parts. RoMP (Roots of Music Program) This one-semester program teaches 4th grade students concepts like rhythm, melody and dynamics through in-school music lessons, interactive concerts, and basic choral instruction, all through the lens of world music artists.
 
Recorders in Schools This year-long in-school program teaches 5th graders to read music, play the recorder and perform together as an ensemble. We bring instrumental music education to schools where it would otherwise not exist, and show kids that practice and perseverance lead to success. LA Opera Partnership Each year, we fill the Warner Grand Theatre with local 4th and 5th graders who come to see a free, youth-tailored performance by the LA Opera.

LOVE THE LOBBY
As the Friend’s Group to the Warner Grand Theatre, Grand Vision is launching the “Love the Lobby”
Campaign to restore the main lobby’s historic art deco ceiling and more. The Warner Grand Theatre has been called “an art deco masterpiece.” Its main auditorium and mezzanine lobby have survived, almost untouched, as stunning examples of early 20th Century movie palace design. Yet, the main lobby has not fared as well.
 
At an unknown time, the main lobby’s original painted ceiling and wall decorations were unfortunately painted over in off-white. The historic photo to the left shows how the ceiling was originally painted. Grand Vision is embarking on a project to raise the funds and restore the ceiling and walls of the lobby to their original art deco glory.
