Since 1968 the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture (formerly the Arts Commission) has been sponsoring free concerts at community venues throughout Los Angeles County to provide access to quality music programming representing the diversity of County residents. Each of the five Supervisorial Board Offices of Los Angeles County will provide funds to cover musician’s fees for the program at set rates. The Department of Arts and Culture will coordinate payments to musicians, while free concert presenters are responsible for communicating all information to the Department of Arts and Culture and musicians, coordinating all necessary production logistics, marketing the event, and effectively drawing the audience size as proposed in the application.
