“Music for Montebello” Returns for its Second Year

As teachers and students return to classrooms across Southern California, many with a passion for the performing arts will be excited by the return of The Shops at Montebello’s “Music for Montebello.”


Music for Montebello is a performing arts program that invites local public and private K-12 schools to hold vocal, dance and theatrical recitals at The Shops at Montebello.


The shopping destination will provide $250 gift card to schools for each performance to support arts education in the community. Schools may perform up to four times at The Shops at Montebello during the year.


“Community involvement is important to The Shops at Montebello,” said Marida Petitjean, Director of Marketing and Business Development at The Shops at Montebello. “We’re delighted to host these performing arts events to celebrate the creativity and expressiveness of local youth.”


All public and private K-12 schools from the following cities are invited to participate in the Music for Montebello program: Montebello, Rosemead, Monterey Park, Pico Rivera, Alhambra, Hacienda Heights, Whittier and El Monte.


School performances containing vocal, dance and theatrical elements should be between 30 minutes and two hours in length, and will be free and open to the public, taking place inside the center during mall hours, Monday through Sunday. The Shops at Montebello will determine final performance dates and times. Staging, an audio system and seating for guests will be provided for each performance.


Applications are available at the Guest Services booth, located in Center Court. In-mall performances will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. For questions or inquiries, contact The Shops at Montebello at 323-722-1776.
