ARTISTS

HERB ALPERT

Creator, innovator, musician, producer, artist, and philanthropist; Herb Alpert is a man with a profound passion.

A legendary trumpet player, Alpert’s extraordinary musicianship has earned him five #1 hits, nine GRAMMY Awards (the latest from his 2014 album Steppin’ Out), 15 gold albums, 14 platinum albums, and has sold over 72 million records.

With his desire to bring the arts back to young people, Herb Alpert is helping to change the educational environment through his foundation. The Herb Alpert Foundation supports a number of educational, arts and compassion oriented programs, dedicated to serving young people to help them reach their potential and lead productive, fulfilling lives and to support their unique creative energies and special talents. HAF supports young people to live free from prejudice and, with its many programs, nurtures a capacity for empathy, compassion, mutual respect, tolerance and kindness.

With more than 40 years of philanthropic, musical and artistic activity, Alpert has established a legacy that reflects his firm belief that the arts can make a difference in the world and in the lives of each of us.

LANI HALL

Vocalist, producer, and author Lani Hall started her career in 1966 as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes’s breakthrough group, Brasil ‘66.

She has the distinction of recording more than 22 albums in three different languages. In 1986, Hall won a GRAMMY Award for Best Latin Pop Performance for her album, Es Fácil Amar. Hall picked up her second GRAMMY Award as producer of Herb Alpert’s album Steppin’ Out. Since 2006, Hall and Alpert have been touring with their band to sold out performances around the world.

After establishing a successful solo career in music, and becoming a wife and mother, Lani began to explore new creative outlets for her writing. In the early 1980's, while singing in Mexico City, she started writing in short story form. Her writing process is similar to her singing process in so far as she can visually see a song/lyric unfold before her, as if she were watching a movie.

the
CAUSE

At the Museum of Making Music, we believe that music and music making are essential elements of a full human experience. Thus, providing equal access to exhibitions and programs is central to our work. Each year we invest over $100,000 to support our educational programs that impact thousands of children and adults from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds.

  • In 2017, 8,976 students toured the Museum. We provided free admission and covered all transportation costs for 2,611 students who came from schools where 92% of students live below the poverty level.

  • Also in 2017, through the Museum’s band and orchestra programs, 153 adult amateur musicians enhanced their lives each week through progressive skill building, engagement with peers, and fulfilling musical engagement in a supportive, non-competitive environment.

  • And now, in 2018, the Museum has launched a partnership with San Pasqual Academy to develop an intensive, hands-on music program. San Pasqual Academy is a first-in-the-nation residential education campus designed specifically for foster teens. Foster teens are moved to many places, through no fault of their own. In fact, the average foster teen has attended five different high schools by the end of his/her sophomore year. This constant transition is highly detrimental to their academic progress, causing these students to fall behind in their studies. In order to combat this cycle, San Pasqual Academy was formed. The Academy provides foster teens with a stable, caring home, a quality, individualized education, and the skills needed for independent living. The Museum’s new outreach program is an additional component in the school support strategy, one that will provide participants not only with a safe haven to heal but also to learn and develop all-important life skills such as collaboration, commitment, trust, self-expression and listening skills as well as the exploration of career options in the field of music.

The goal of this benefit concert is to raise $30,000 in support of the quality educational programs outlined above. Additionally, funds raised will help maintain and upgrade the hands-on interactive instruments that are available for all visitors to play.
