On March 26, the Norris Theater and Pavilion in Rancho Palos Verdes, California will host an intimate all-star concert that will benefit the Peninsula Education Foundation – PEF. This one-of-a-kind event will offer an unforgettable experience including a live show, an auction, an impressive red carpet, and an after party. All musicians involved with the event are contributing their time, energy and musical talents in an effort to benefit public education by helping fund programming supported by PEF, including school music, physical education, library and STEM programs, safe school counselors, academic and career counselors, and teacher salaries.
“When I learned how many important school programs were cut due to low state funding, I knew I had to reach out to my platinum selling rock stars and award winning classical musician friends. Everybody from the musicians to the volunteers are so proud to give their time and talent for this epic, once-in-a-lifetime concert experience and after-party, all to support the kids of the community,” says founding contributor of “Classic to Rock” Marten Andersson, bassist from hard rock bands Lizzy Borden and Lynch Mob.
Hutong, world-class violinist and chamber musician for the Pacific Symphony Orchestra and Opera Pacific Orchestra, adds: “This unique concert journeys from year 1685 to modern day – whether you are a classical music lover or hard core rock-and-roll fan, this concert and after-party event is for everyone.”
