WHAT:

The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Macedonia Community Development Corporation (CDC), and Macedonia Baptist Church of Los Angeles present Springtime in Watts, a free neighborhood concert featuring the trombone ensemble of the LA Phil (David Rejano Cantero, James Miller, Paul Radke, and John Lofton); LA Phil musicians Dale Breidenthal (violin), Stacy Wetzel (violin), Minor L. Wetzel (viola), David Garrett (cello); and Voices of Macedonia (combined adult voices of all of Macedonia Baptist Church’s choirs) on Sunday, March 31, at 6:00 PM at Macedonia Baptist Church of Los Angeles.

“When faith and community come together, the possibilities of shalom become reality. Our relationship with the LA Phil is all about bringing hope and healing to hurting communities through music,” said Shane B. Scott, pastor of Macedonia Baptist Church of Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Neighborhood Concerts include free orchestra, chamber music, and jazz concerts in churches, community centers, and other local venues around Southern California. The Los Angeles Philharmonic has been presenting free Neighborhood Concerts for over 20 years, as part of the organization’s dedication to making music accessible to the widest possible audience.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Macedonia CDC and Macedonia Baptist Church of Los Angeles for the first of what we hope are many Neighborhood Concerts to come. Watts has a rich musical history, and we are honored to have been invited to play for this extraordinary community,” said Simon Woods, CEO of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Scott established the Macedonia Community Development Corporation (CDC) as a 501(c)(3), public charity to help transform Watts by creating programs and services in mental, physical and financial health and “all things children.”  The CDC and the Church have recently partnered to present concerts highlighting the rich musical gifts of the Voices of Macedonia and the talents of other instrumental ensembles.  Macedonia CDC will seek partnerships that will contribute to transforming lives through ministry, programs, services and music.
