Students Learn About Culture, Music At South Coast Venue Best Known For Concerts

Apr 10, 2018

Thousands of excited elementary school students poured into the Santa Barbara Bowl, but it wasn't to see a traditional concert like Katy Perry or Sugarland. They were on hand to learn about culture and music.

The more than 4000 students split between a pair of shows learned about Japanese Taiko drumming, through a mini-concert by the Taiko Center of Los Angeles.

The program is part show, and part education.

The Santa Barbara Bowl is using this event as a kickoff to efforts to ramp up its educational programs. The program is a collaboration of community groups.

The Bowl is hoping to host one of these educational concerts a year in the future.
