KCET's "Open Call" series showcases Los Angeles' vibrant arts community with a series of performances from leading Southern California arts institutions and schools. Featured are The Colburn School Conservatory of Music and School of Performing Arts, as well as contributions from partners UCLA Live, USC, Los Angeles Ballet, Live @ The Ford, and Fine Cut. Hosted by internationally-acclaimed mezzo-soprano opera singer Suzanna Guzman, the weekly series includes full-length performances recorded live in theaters; company and artist profiles; and other unique works being performed across the Southland. Ms. Guzman, a Los Angeles native who has performed all over the world, sets the stage for viewers in each episode, contributing her unique insights into the evening's performance. She encourages directors, artists and other key players in the production to provide additional commentary that helps tell the story of the organization and what it is presenting, an advantage not usually available at live events.
