Street Symphony is thrilled to sponsor our first Block Party celebrating the resilience of the Skid Row Community from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM on Friday, July 12, 2019 in conjunction with our long time partners and collaborators at the Midnight Mission. Block Party will include live musical performances by Mission to Midnight, the Midnight Mission House Band, Las Colibri, our beloved all female Mariachi ensemble, reggae DJ Sir Oliver with a stringed orchestra, Urban Voices Project community choir, the Street Symphony Jazz Ensemble, and the Ashe Ashe Drummers from the Heart specializing in West African percussion. Over 100 volunteers will work in conjunction with Midnight Mission and Street Symphony staff to serve 2,000 meals during the performance. I’ve attached a flyer with event details. What it won’t tell you is that we’ve performed over 600 engagements at Skid Row Service Providers, LA County Jails, and California State Prisons in the last eight years, but this is the first time Street Symphony has ever been in the Street!
The event will take place on 6th Street between San Pedro and San Julian in front of the Midnight Mission.
