This December See-A-Show as our music community partners celebrate with Holiday Concerts! EEU is promoting live music spectatorship for our student audience with a music community concert calendar.
“See-A-Show Concert Calendars” will feature local music events that are free or inexpensive from music college partners and nonprofits promoting music arts. You can support music audience membership by sharing OC shows in instrumental music, orchestra, and jazz with EEU for future music community calendars.
Many events were found at SparkOC.com, a program of Arts Orange County.
Check it out for arts events and arts education throughout the year, including EEU Events!!
