“The Arts for Youth program plays a vital role in the lives of our children and teens by making the arts available in a number of ways,” said David Friedman, U.S. Bank District Manager and LPAC Foundation Board Member. “The unique opportunities Arts for Youth delivers can be absolutely life-changing. Without the support from the Arts for Youth program, many children and teens may never have the opportunity or means to take part in these valuable experiences.”
Through the Arts for Youth program, participants learn how to act, dance, sing, and express their creativity and artistic talent, all while experiencing the arts and great performances at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center. Some also receive firsthand instruction from artists and musicians in their schools, while others are able to participate in a theatrical performance.
Owned and operated by the city of Lancaster, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center relies on the combined support of the city, the Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation and community partners to maximize service to the community. Effective partnerships between government, educational institutions and businesses ensure the availability of cultural opportunities to all children in the greater Antelope Valley region.
“For twenty years, the LPAC Foundation has provided funding for Arts for Youth, exposing Antelope Valley students to the performing arts and live theatre,” said Lou Bozigian, LPAC Foundation President. “We are very appreciative of Mr. Friedman’s efforts, resulting in U.S. Bank’s generous grant of $10,000 toward this wonderful program. Their support will ensure even more students have the opportunity to experience these inspirational and educational performances.”
