Church of Scientology Community Center Hosts Classical Concert
The Church of Scientology Community Center of South Los Angeles hosted a special performance June 24, the fifth annual concert of “Love-in-Music ,” a nonprofit organization that introduces underserved children of the Los Angeles area to the joys of classical music.
The concert, held in the Community Center’s L. Ron Hubbard Auditorium, featured Love-in-Music’s talented young music students and special performances by soprano Kyung Chy, baritone Y.D. Kwon and the Park Trio—Yoon-Jae Park (violin), his wife Soo-Jung (cello), and brother Andrew (piano), with music arranged by Dr. Hyun Jung Hwang, faculty member of New California Conservatory and Institute of Art, Music and Science.
The Church of Scientology Community Center makes its auditorium, seminar rooms and conference rooms, at 8039 South Vermont Avenue in South Los Angeles, available to community groups, churches and public officials, providing a place where community events, programs and activities can take place.
Love-in-Music is a nonprofit organization established by a group of Korean volunteers in the wake of the 1992 riots. The group seeks to bridge cultural and ethnic boundaries through music. Through donations of musical instruments and encouraging local musicians to volunteer as music teachers, Love-in-Music reaches out to needy children, providing them music training that would not otherwise be available.
Captain Dennis Kato, Commanding Officer of the 77th Street Community Police Station, introduced Love-in-Music to the Scientology Community Center. The Community Center was proud to host the concert and looks forward to continued partnership this fall by making their facilities available to youth ages 8-12 for free Love-in-Music music lessons.
