The Music Center issued a call Tuesday for videos from Los Angeles-based performing artists and cultural groups who want to perform at the 61st annual L.A. County Holiday Celebration, which is planned for Christmas Eve.
The televised event is set for 3-6 p.m. on Dec. 24 at The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, pending county guidelines on gatherings and events as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, according to The Music Center.
Artists are being sought in the vocal ensemble, musical ensemble or dance categories, and performances must be suitable for a crowd of all ages.
As in recent years, those who want to apply need to complete an online application form and submit a high-quality, three-minute video that shows a continuous performance of a past work and has been recorded within the last 12 months.
If artists do not currently have a performance recording, the application process can be started with the video portion submitted after the “Safer at Home” order is lifted and before the Aug. 2 deadline.
For the first time, recorded video calls through Zoom or similar programs would also be accepted as performance video if existing material is not readily available before the deadline.
