Live! Music & Kids...
Our award-winning “Live! Music & Kids” education program brings professional musicians to the Laguna Beach Boys & Girls Club and the Laguna schools for performances and classes
Laguna Live! awarded scholarships to five deserving Laguna Beach High School Students in June 2022
Without musicians there is no music. Laguna Beach Live! works to make sure there is great music for all by supporting our professional artists, our rising stars and our local students. Traditionally, Laguna Live! gives two $1000 scholarships to LBHS seniors who have shown a sustained interest in, and aptitude for music, and who plan to continue music education at a 2 or 4-year college. This year, we had so many really dedicated and talented music students who applied, that the Board stepped up to add to our $2000 kitty in order to give out FIVE $1000 scholarships. Each of our winners wrote an essay explaining their interest and history in music and describing their plans and dreams for the future. The five winning essays made us proud to award each student money to continue their music education and passion.
The five winning students were Theodore Coffey, Georgia Keel, Bastion Evans, Alex Yepiz and Max Suh.

Music Appreciation: our award-winning “Live! Music & Kids” education program brings professional musicians to the Laguna Beach Boys & Girls Club for afternoon performances and classes. During the Music Festival, we provide in-school performances from festival artists, after-school workshops, interactive meet-the-artist events, discounted Festival tickets and youth volunteer opportunities.
Music Performance Enhancement Program: our outreach extends to the four Laguna Beach Schools on an as requested basis, from Master Classes with our acclaimed jazz artists at the High School to string quartets and other ensembles at the lower grades to inspire participation in music by the students.
