1919 - Mike Shuman, Placerita Junior High School principal, born in Fitchburg, Mass. [story]


The City of Santa Clarita Sister Cities, in partnership with the Santa Clarita Valley International Program, will host a benefit concert, Journey Through Latin America II, at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2, at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons, 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road.

Journey Through Latin America II is a multicultural explosion of folk and popular music styles including Tango, Cumbia and Samba. The concert will celebrate music, culture, dance and the stories of several Latin America countries, including Ecuador, Colombia, Nicaragua, Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil.

All proceeds from the event will benefit SCVIP and Santa Clarita Sister Cities programs. The funds will also provide for up to three scholarships for Santa Clarita students to travel abroad as ambassadors on trips, such as a literacy mission to Nicaragua and a medical or water purification mission to Ecuador.

Tickets for the benefit concert range from $10 to $30 and are available at the Performing Arts Center Box Office online at canyonpac.com.

The Santa Clarita Sister Cities Program is a proud member of Sister Cities International (SCI), a nonprofit citizen diplomacy network creating and strengthening partnerships between U.S. and international communities in an effort to increase global cooperation at the municipal level, to promote cultural understanding and to stimulate economic development. Currently, the City of Santa Clarita has international Sister Cities in Tena, Ecuador and Sariaya, Philippines.
