2nd Annual Make Music LA on Hollywood Boulevard at Egyptian Theatre
Hollywood is rich in music history, with many great bands and artists having gotten their start here, and many famous recordings produced in the many studios located here.
To celebrate this musical heritage, and recognize the vast amount of talent right here in the community, HPOA produced the second annual Make Music LA on Hollywood Boulevard on June 21, 2017, at the historic Egyptian Theatre’s forecourt.
Sponsored by Sunset + Vine Apartments and Robertson Properties Group, and with cooperation from American Cinematheque and Musicians Institute, the event was an all-day, all-ages, free outdoor concert.
Performers included students and alumni of Musicians Institute Honey & Jude, Bruno Romano + Oriana Lucas, Rayssa, and Janvi Anand. Additional local artists included Earth Arrow, Sunshine & Moon, Emily Zuzik, and Arthur*Autumn. Hohner donated harmonicas to attendees, and Urban Masala sponsored lunch for all artists. Makeup artist Marky Make-Up was on hand providing airbrush tattoos.
Make Music Los Angeles on Hollywood Boulevard is part of Make Music LA. Based on France’s Fête de la Musique, a national musical holiday inaugurated in 1982, the festival has become a phenomenon celebrated on the same day in more than 800 cities in 110 countries. Make Music LA engages all communities of Los Angeles in an annual cross-cultural celebration of the power of music and art through musical performances by amateurs, students and professionals.
