The African Children’s Choir
- How it started: In 1981, Ray Barnett took 31 children out of war-torn Africa and organized them into a choir. He then used the concert proceeds to found a stable home for them where they could escape poverty and get a quality education.
- How many children in Africa are currently supported by the program: over 7,000
- Where you’ve seen the choir perform: all over the place, from American Idol to Annie Lennox concerts
Count Basie Theatre
Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details grab the eyes of visitors, recalling the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling them to the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a dangling chandelier. Since opening in 1926, the Count Basie has earned numerous accolades, including a nod from Pollstar magazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
