Don't miss three weekends of outdoor fun at the Getty Center in August
The Cultural Heritage Choir, August 13–14
Come on and shake a tail feather with the Cultural Heritage Choir on a journey through African American song.
The choir performs African-inspired call-and-response songs that blend folk tales, powerful percussion, and dance into a celebration of freedom. Their music is foot-stomping, hand-clapping fun for kids of all ages.
Please note that due to illness, Linda Tillery will not be appearing with the Cultural Heritage Choir for this concert. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Justin Roberts and the Not Ready for Naptime Players, August 20–21
Three-time Parents' Choice Gold Award winner Justin Roberts combines upbeat rock with snappy lyrics about key childhood issues such as cleaning your room, wanting a dog, and coping with monsters in the dark.
Backed by the Not Ready for Naptime Players, Roberts perfectly captures a kid's-eye view of the world.

José-Luis Orozco, August 27–28
Celebrate Latin American culture with José-Luis Orozco as you dance, sing, and maybe even make an animal sound or two.
Orozco thrills preschoolers, grade-schoolers, and fun-loving parents with his bilingual celebrations of Latin American history, language, and culture. His popular books and songs encourage kids to read, learn about other cultural traditions, and just have fun being kids. "El sonido es mágico," says La Opinión.
