What are you in the mood for this summer? A Brazilian Samba? Hawaiian Hula? Maybe a little funky New Orleans Jazz or the exotic sounds from the Middle East? Your family can enjoy any or all of these types of music at the Hollywood Bowl’s Summersounds program, one of the most anticipated Los Angeles events of the season.
The four-week series, geared for ages 3-9, spotlights a different music style each week. Starting things off the week of July 13, the Treme Brass Band will share the spirited sounds of New Orleans. The next week, you’ll set sail for the Pacific Islands as Hālau Ka Ua Tuahine explores the song and dance of Polynesia and Hawaii. The Yuval Ron Ensemble will offer a peek into the music of Morocco, Yemen, Turkey, Armenia and Israel the week of July 27, and Katia Moreas Ensemble and Vivar Brazil Dance will close the series by performing the vibrant dances and music of Brazil.
There will be 10 and 11:15 a.m. shows each day, and an arts-and-crafts workshop themed with that week’s music will follow the 10 a.m. performance.
Summersounds is popular, so advance registration is recommended. Tickets – $16 per person per show, or $13 per person per show if you purchase all four shows – are available at www.hollywoodbowl.com or by calling 323-850-2000.
