The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center Announced it’s 2011-2012 Season Line Up and if you are a fan of great music and great shows then this is your place.
Headlining the new season is Kenny Loggins with opening act the Blue Sky Riders on September 16th 2011. The season is shaping up to be one of the best for the popular Santa Clarita venue. Other highlights include Dionne Warwick, Martin Short, Anthony Bourdain and Los Angeles Band and favorites Ozomatli. These are all part of the Chancellor’s Choice Series beginning with Loggins in September.
Center Manager Adam Philipson says “There is a lot of great things happening….” At the Performing Arts Center.
Some of the great highlights for the up coming season are not even taking place at the center. One of these highlights is going to be an actual World Record Attempt, for the largest Drum Circle of Kids. On May 18th 2012 over 7,000 kids from Santa Clarita schools will be brought to the COC stadium to attempt the world record. Remo Drums, The Performing Arts Center and various Santa Clarita School Districts are sponsoring the event.
The other highlight is a new program, that was done on a limited basis during the 2010-2011 season but will go into full swing during the 2011-2012 season. The program is called CONNECT. This program is designed to help the students of COC and the local Community to “Connect” with some of the acts coming to the Performing Arts Center.
Kenny Loggins, Anthony Bourdain and JazzReach are just some of the acts that will participate in this new program. Loggins and Bourdain will both hold special receptions for the community and students and JazzReach will be working with local school bands to educate them on the world of Jazz.
Along with shows put on by local groups and the College of the Canyons community the 2011-2012 season is looking to be a great one for all who attend.
