For the past five years, the Los Angeles Music and Art School (LAMAS) has produced its ?Stars for the Arts? Benefit Concert in order to build its scholarship fund for low-income students, and assist the school in developing students? talent and supporting their love for the arts.
On Thursday, August 14th at the Luckman Theatre on the California State University, Los Angeles campus at 7:00 PM, master of ceremony, Henry Alfaro, ABC7 Eyewitness News, will present LAMAS? sixth annual ?Stars for the Arts? Benefit Concert.
This year?s event will honor Jeff Valdez (pictured), co-chairman of S?TV and executive producer and co-creator of The Brothers Garcia on Nickelodeon and Felix R. Sanchez, president of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts. Both were selected to receive the ?Stars for the Arts? Award for their talent, passion, and vision in nurturing the Latino community and the arts.
The concert will feature dance, vocal, and music performances by the talented students and alumni of the Los Angeles Music and Art School. ?Stars for the Arts? not only helps raise funds but also provides the students with the incredible life experience of performing on a professional stage for our esteemed community leaders, parents, and fellow students.
Events and programs, such as ?Stars for the Arts?, are crucial for Los Angeles students as shown through a study by the Education Department proving that the arts help children problem solve, think creatively, and develop mental discipline. As Albert Einstein once said, ?Without creative personalities able to think and judge independently, the upward development of society is unthinkable.?
