Featuring more than 100 Los Angeles County-based groups representing a range of musical styles, the Musicians Roster is comprised of artists chosen by a panel of experienced and respected music professionals. Criteria include artistic excellence, cultural diversity and the ability to work cooperatively with other organizations. The Roster represents a variety of musical genres, including African, classical, electronic, folk, jazz, Mexican, R&B, South American and many more. This online directory is accessible to the general public.
