Today’s edition of Arts Alive tackles the difficult question of funding for public school arts and music education. It’s a question for which one local conductor, together with the orchestra he founded, has a pretty creative answer. Carlo Ponti founded the Los Angeles Virtuosi Orchestra four years ago. He says it’s an ensemble which exists to help fund music education.
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
