Each fall, more than 100 of our student performers and artists showcase their talents during Descanso Gardens’ popular “Enchanted: Forest of Light” exhibit. Descanso Gardens is also working with us to hold special gallery openings and on-site art creation.

Pasadena Conservatory of Music

Pasadena Conservatory of Music

The beautiful Barrett Hall at the Pasadena Conservatory of Music serves as a venue for many of our instrumental music and vocal arts events. CSArts-SGV also serves as a satellite campus for the conservatory’s private instruction, and both partners benefit from sharing master artists.

MUSE/IQUE

MUSE/IQUE

CSArts-SGV students enjoy curriculum-based, small group music interactions that explore the ideas behind upcoming performances at MUSE/IQUE, to which they receive free tickets to attend. Each session is an opportunity for students to have an up-close experience with invited guest artists; explore self-expression; gain self-confidence and self-control; connect with fellow students and staff; see, hear and/or play a variety of musical instruments; engage their imaginations; and be inspired. Students act as both audience and participants as each workshop uses a kinesthetic approach, incorporating related art forms such as dance, theater and visual arts.

Citrus College

Citrus College

In addition to providing venue space for several of our performances, Citrus College is also committed to providing early college opportunities on and off our campus. The college welcomes CSArts-SGV juniors and seniors to campus once or twice per year, providing them with original programming and classes. Citrus College also holds more than a dozen dual-enrollment classes on the CSArts-SGV campus through which students can receive college credit.

Incubator Project

Incubator Project

CSArts-SGV and mediaV, a Santa Monica-based production company, have partnered to develop the “Incubator Project,” a one-of-a-kind collaboration that gives students within the Musical Theatre Conservatory the opportunity to be the first to originate and produce a series of new rock musicals.  MediaV founders and philanthropists Russell Meyer and Marcy Shaffer have given $50,000 to the school to support the development of two world premieres over the next two school years. Using the works of William Shakespeare as source material, the Incubator Project creates modern and musicals to be premiered by CSArts-SGV students, and subsequently made available for the public to license and perform.

Enchanted Dancewear

Enchanted Dancewear

Enchanted Dancewear has been integral in assisting with costuming and dance shoe fittings for CSArts-SGV students. They have also been extremely supportive of our dance programs and offer students a discount for dancewear purchases.
