The Fernando Pullum Community Arts Center is a nonprofit organization providing quality performing arts instruction to underserved students in South Los Angeles. The teachers provide a program filled with structure and a well-planned curriculum to help their students build self-esteem, develop civic responsibility, and learn to apply this same dedication and commitment to their academics. Pullum Center serves all students with a desire to learn and develop their talent. Each year, Pullum Center provides free instruction and an enriching environment to more than 600 students, ages 5 to 20. This evening, their big band will be performing. The band is composed of students from South Central and Compton, the youngest of which is 8 years old. As performers, they have worked with or performed with Dr John, Ronnie Spector, Aloe Blacc, Flea, Arturo Sandoval and others. These kids have dedicated their lives to uplifting the community. They play at convalescence homes, feeding the homeless projects , and other community events.
