Music Center Cultural Arts Assemblies
The Music Center on Tour brings the immediacy of live performance to schools. These performances reflect and clebrate the finest artistic contributions from the world's cultures-from the colorful regional dances of Mexico to equisite music of the Middle East, from the pulsating rhythms of West Africa to the golden harmonies of early 20th Century America.
All Music Center on Tour performances are designed to completment and enhance student workshop series. All assemblies include written teacher preparation materials whick contain background information on the artist and specific pre/post assemblie activities for the classroom as well as connections to multiple content areas.
Thankfully, due to the continued support of our parents and extensive funding from the El Rodeo PTA, our students have been able to participate in these amazing multicultural arts assemblies at El Rodeo School for many years. Each year, co-chairs Jodi Galen and Sandra Walder work closely with teachers from each grade level team to discuss curriculum connections to the grade level standards and then select assemblies/workshops that support those connections through out the year. This level of enrichment provides all students access to an educational experience that brings learning alive.
Bringing this extension of learning to El Rodeo students would not be possible if it were not for the generous financial support of our families through PTA fundraising and the volunteer hours needed to coordinate and organize this program for the year. El Rodeo has one of the largest Music Center on Tour Assemblies programs in all of Los Angeles County. Thank you El Rodeo parents and supporters of this incredible program.
