The best show of the year is back!|
Get ready to rock along with Rick Springfield, as well as Terri Nunn from Berlin, as they play a some of their respective hits, including "Jesse's Girl" and "Take My Breath Away." With the headliners accompanied by local favorites VENICE and our own nationally recognized choir, orchestra and band students, this show is not to be missed!
Taking place on March 10, 2018 at Santa Monica High Schools Barnum Hall, the concert will raise funds for the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation. Proceeds will support arts programs at all SMMUSD schools next year.
Emmy award-winning journalist Mark Steines, host of Hallmark Channels Home & Family, and longtime Los Angeles radio personality Cynthia Fox will emcee the evening, which will also feature a live auction of signed instruments, experiences and more.
This is the 13th production of the Ed Foundations popular concerts. Last year, the concert was renamed the Greg Coote Concert For The Arts, in memory of entertainment executive and SMMUSD parent Greg Coote. Coote led the Ed Foundations For The Arts endowment campaign to ensure continuity of arts programming for students in the Santa Monica-Malibu public schools. He sadly passed away in 2014, but left an indelible mark on arts education in our local public schools.
