  • Lyric Opera San Diego
    Reflecting on this childhood, Chris Keating sometimes feels as if he didn't exist. His parents' divorce left him with very little tangible evidence of his formative years, so he's spent his adult life as a photographer making sure children can look back fondly at warm family memories. Chris Keating and his Calgary staff have made this a reality for more than 3,000 families since opening the doors to Towne Photography in 2006. There, the professional photographic crew shoots posed and candid shots of families, children, couples, and babies at picturesque parks or against their studio backdrops, and they also snap triumphant graduate portraits, intimate prenatal shots, and provocative passport pics that make border crossing a breeze. Their ironclad guarantee allows unsatisfied clients to request reshoots, reprints, or resizing on all photographs, and they vow to remake or recapture any artwork that sustains damage over the years. Chris also takes his photographic knowledge on the road to conduct Betterphoto Workshops across the United States and Canada, teaching novice photographers how to artistically preserve their most precious memories.

  • San Diego Junior Theatre
    For more than 65 years, San Diego Junior Theatre has been training young thespians for a life on the stage. The training has sparked the careers of many notable actors including Dennis Hopper – who took part in one of the earliest productions, and award-winning actresses Raquel Welch and Annette Bening. Although the theater doesn’t offer tours, there are productions running from October through August in the Casa del Prado Theatre. The historic façade is decorated with a rich terra cotta relief and sits just east of the Timken museum and in front of Balboa Park’s Botanical Building. The theater also offers educational programs in Chula Vista, La Jolla and throughout San Diego County, as well as at the central Balboa Park location.

  • Old Globe Theatre
    In Shakespeare’s time, theatergoers thronged to an outdoor stage set in a unique octagonal building. The aristocracy watched from boxes ringing a central courtyard, while the peasants stood below, close to the action. In San Diego the tradition of performing the Bard’s plays outdoors continues with a similar architectural layout, though the entire audience now gets to watch from comfortable seats. The three performance spaces known collectively as the Old Globe include a modern indoor theater whose exterior is modeled after Shakespeare’s, a smaller indoor theater, and an outdoor festival stage. One of the most respected regional theaters in the nation, The Old Globe offers more than a dozen plays and musicals each year, from recently acclaimed playwrights to fresh takes on traditional productions. The Tony Award-winning theater has been charming audiences for more than 75 years, and offers free seminars, educational programs and special events throughout the year.

  • Champion Ballroom Academy
    A childhood peppered with basketball, football, and volleyball couldn't keep Mary Murphy out of the ballroom after she was struck by the athleticism of the sport while watching a championship performance in her early twenties. She began to compete around the world, eventually slowing down enough to found Champion Ballroom Academy in 1990 and finally teaching there full-time in between stints on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance. Mary has plucked like-minded instructors for her studio, some of whom created Core Rhythms, a Latin dance-based aerobics program. Many of the other teachers are competitive-dance champions or black belts in hula hoop. Aside from running a flourishing dance studio, Mary's palpable passion for the art form has also driven her to play a leading role in San Diego's Chance to Dance program, a curriculum that introduces school kids to the artistry and strength-building foundations of dance.

  • Mainly Mozart
    Inspired by "the genius and innovation of Mozart and the masters," for 25 years Mostly Mozart has gathered together music-lovers, world-class musicians, and composers. The latter category doesn’t just include the group’s namesakes, child prodigy Li’l Mikey Mozart and his uncle Wolfgang, but a vast range of musical thinkers making pieces that feel as exciting today as Mozart’s did in 1770. A summer music festival (Southern California's largest) and chamber music concerts throughout the year comprise programs that specialize in fascinating juxtapositions: modern neuroscience with classical sonatas, for instance, or hummable songs from the British Isles with their soulmates from Italy.
