Investing in future artists and audiences.
What’s your dream? Have you always wanted to play an instrument? Perform on stage? Learn how to dance? See your favorite musician perform?
SB Bowl Outreach is here to help your performing arts dreams come true.
For students, the benefits extend far beyond the performance; they learn how to be a part of an audience, get a cultural experience at an historic community landmark, and may begin imagining careers in the arts. Currently students may participate through our Community Ticket Subsidy program, an opportunity to visit the Bowl that some might not otherwise be able to afford.
Ever wanted to rock the stage with a group of your best friends? Play a violin solo for friends and family? Dance till the last curtain closes? Well we want you to, as well. Here is a list of organizations that can help YOU turn that into a reality in your own backyard:
