This event will raise funds for the Performing Arts Program at Watts Learning Center, supporting the creation of an in-school instrumental instruction program, the expansion of the vocal instruction program, and cultural enrichment for WLC students via in-school workshops and performances by world-class artists, and field trips to the LA Phil, LA Opera, and other great cultural institutions within the city of Los Angeles.

This concert unveils the highly-anticipated new album from trailblazing American pianist Lara Downes: SOME OF THESE DAYS, a musical reflection on social justice, freedom and equality, expressed through music that is at the roots of our American story. With special guests Ifetayo Ali-Landing, cello, and Perry Hayes, vocalist - and featuring performances by Watts Learning Center students of writing produced via Downes' My Promise Project initiative.

Lara Downes is recognized as one of the leading musical artists of her generation - a cultural visionary and an iconoclast who is redefining the canon for new audience and a new generation. Downes’ fierce commitment to arts advocacy, mentorship and education sees her working in support of non-profit organizations including PLAN International, the Sphinx Organization, the Lower Eastside Girls Club, Washington Performing Arts, and NPR’s From The Top, where she appears as a rotating guest host.
