Southland Sessions Presents: From high school operas and drive-thru art exhibitions to Chicano comedies and underground DJ sets—we are showcasing the vibrancy of arts and culture across our city today.
Take a moment to bask in the joy of Voices of Creation's sound in this special Grand Performances presentation filmed at Los Angeles' historic Heritage Square Museum, inside the rustic Lincoln Avenue Methodist Church, originally built in 1897.
This performance of "Operation Feed Yourself" is a clip from the third and last installment in Grand Performances' Heritage Square Series of "Feature Presentations." See Voices of Creation's full performance and more from this series here.
