Youth Voice and Creativity Takes Center Stage at L.A. Charter School

07-21-2021

“Student voice” is a focus of many music for social change programs. This recording of the annual school show at Renaissance Arts Academy (created virtually in this pandemic year) sets a high bar for student originality and authentic expression. RenArts, as it’s called, is a charter school in Los Angeles that infuses artistry throughout its curriculum and offers extended-day Sistema-like programs in music and dance. It has the same student demographics as other L.A. schools and is among the top in regional academic ranking, even though test prep is a low priority. Check out this year’s student show, titled What If…?, on Vimeo.
