The vivacious beats of Latin Jazz, the lively notes of Zydeco, the pounding drums of Taiko, and much more can all be heard as part of a series of 78 free concerts sponsored by Los Angeles County this summer and into fall.

Concerts get underway July 8th at public sites all over the county, including parks, libraries, plazas, and arts centers, and run until October 22. Twenty-three of the concerts are part of the Los Angeles County Parks After Dark (PAD) Program, a component of the County’s Gang Initiative intended to reduce gangs and gang violence. Learn more about how the performers are selected and how to apply to be one yourself for next year, check out the LA County Arts Commission's site.
