Hello my name is Raul Pacheco, and I’m a proud board member of Grand Performances.
What does Grand Performances mean to me?
Well, being a musician from Los Angeles with Ozomatli for 25 years, Grand Performances has hosted some of our most iconic performances.
My favorite was when I got to play with Stevie Wonder.
We’re looking forward to when we can all get back together and have some good fun, in the way that us Los Angelenos love to do.
I want to invite you to our End of the Year campaign,

Looking back at Grand Performances’ SONGS IN THE KEY OF LOS ANGELES, a multi-platform collaboration between USC professor Josh Kun and Los Angeles Public Library from 2013, featuring special guests Stevie Wonder, Ozomatli, Cheech Marin, La Santa Cecilia, Jackson Browne, Ceci Bastida and more.
“Few are the musical experiences that you can safely say, “this is a night I’ll remember the rest of my life.” But that performance of Wonder’s “Land of La La” made a huge dent.” LA Times
Consisting of sheet music pieces that range from the 1840s through the 1950s, SONGS IN THE KEY OF LOS ANGELES brought to life the extraordinary history of Southern California sheet music, offering a singular portrait of Los Angeles culture rendered in music and visual art.
Grand Performances’ mission is to inspire community, celebrate diversity, and unite Los Angeles through free access to global performing arts. While all our programming is free, producing it is not.
