The Year in Review
Our Graduation stats are strong (see below). Our students went to Calculus Camp, Pen Model Congress and the United Nations.
We raised money to keep us going another year.
Our students performed at the Hollywood Bowl, The Rose Bowl Parade, Disneyland,
Our Lady of Angeles, Next Generations Monterey Jazz Festival, the Pantages and of course,
the Academy of Awards.
We were written up in the LA Times, Hollywood Reporter and Hollywood Register. Students were interviewed for NPR, KTLA and 93.7, Hot Jam.
The Academy of Music has a waiting list and we hope to enroll as many students as possible.
We're excited about next year--starting our own record label introducing Arabic as another language and producing the same quality of performances you have all come to love,
We had a good year and hope for an even better one next year. So rest up and have a terrific summer.

Norm Pattiz Concert Hall

The 700-seat Norman J. Pattiz Concert Hall was dedicated at Hamilton High School Academy of Music in Los Angeles in February 1989.
