VC LIVE | Music for Food "Los Angeles Chapter Spotlight"

All donations from the concert will be sent to the Midnight Mission



We’re coming to you from Los Angeles for a special “Music For Food Los Angeles Chapter Online Spotlight” concert.

Featuring musicians from UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music, all donations from the concert will benefit the Midnight Mission in Skid Row, which has been offering a path to self-sufficiency to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness since 1914. Watch the concert here.

It is estimated that 1 in 9 people in the United States struggle with food insecurity, and Music for Food’s concerts, to date, have raised funds to create more than 1.5 million meals.

If you are enjoying the stream, featuring works by Vivaldi, Telemann, Handel, and Popper, and would like to directly support the Music for Food movement, you can donate now at:

Established in 2010 by violist Kim Kashkashian, Music for Food aims to raise awareness in the fight against hunger, encouraging musicians to use their artistry to further social justice. You can read more about the story of the movement in our interview with Ms. Kashkashian, here.
