This is the 13th production of the Ed Foundation’s popular concerts. Last year, the concert was renamed the Greg Coote Concert For The Arts, in memory of entertainment executive and SMMUSD parent Greg Coote. Coote led the Ed Foundation’s For The Arts endowment campaign to ensure continuity of arts programming for students in the Santa Monica-Malibu public schools. He sadly passed away in 2014, but left an indelible mark on arts education in local public schools.
If concert line-up changes due to unforeseen circumstances, no refunds will be given.
