In celebration of Womens History and Music in Our Schools Month, Education Through MusicLos Angeles held its 4th Annual Music & A Makeover, bringing together local, female-led fashion brands, live music and food & wine tastings to empower women and raise funds for in-school music programs for disadvantaged schools across Los Angeles County.


Co-hosted by ETM-LA Board Member Lola Debney, Jen Davis and Kala Maxym of Five Senses Tastings, the evening featured intimate performances by singer-songwriter Judith Hill (The Voice, Michael Jackson), actress/singer Karen David (Galavant, Once Upon A Time, Barry, Timeless) and recording artist Shoshana Bean (Hairspray, Wicked, Funny Girl). Guests enjoyed perusing jewelry and designs from Queen’s Trunk and Rose & Sage, as well as children’s clothing lines Dulce Swimwear and Ice Cream Castles.


The music was paired sensitively with delicious wine, cheese and chocolate (courtesy of EOS Chocolates), to enhance the listening experience and reflect the artists’ unique backgrounds and styles. Each artist shared inspiring, personal stories and displayed their own fashion sense, with Judith Hill and Shoshana Bean wearing London-based designer Karen Millen, and Karen David showcasing jewelry by Queen’s Trunk. Other sponsors included Popular, Smashbox, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Pauline’s Premier Sweets, and LifeWtr.
