The Music Center Fountain lit for the holiday, as captured by Sterling Davis, who tweets "Seasons Greetings."
As all Angelenos know, The Music Center is home to the Holiday Celebration, and this is the 54th year of regional performances on the stages of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Christmas Eve. I attended rehearsals in previous years and saw choirs and dancers get focused as they prep for the big night. The adults were just as giddy.
I wrote in 2009: "The event began in 1960 as "The Christmas Program," taking place at the Sports Arena in Exposition Park. It moved to the Music Center when the facility opened in 1964. In fact,County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn, who represented the 2nd District from 1952 to 1992, led fundraising for the facility only on the condition that it be open to the public, for free, at least one day each year."
