Councilman Anthony Young Spearheads 13 Mini-Concerts at select Orange Line Trolley Stations in December and January

December 14, 2009 (San Diego)--The Orange Line’s third annual Holiday Entertainment Series starts today at the 62nd Street/Encanto Trolley Station. Rodney Hutsona, a jazz vocalist will kick off the series which will feature performers from the Southeast San Diego area.


The holiday music tradition is spearheaded by San Diego Councilman and MTS Board Member Anthony Young, with support from the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation, Coca-Cola, and MTS. This is Councilman Young’s third year to offer the holiday music series.


“I hope this music will make this holiday season more enjoyable for the community. “ Councilman Young said. “Last year the music put a lot of smiles on the faces of many bus and trolley riders as they arrived to go to work or when they returned home.”

Funding from Councilman Young was made possible through the City of San Diego’s Commission for Arts and Culture.


“The music is a holiday treat for riders and will make their morning or afternoon commute that more enjoyable,” said MTS CEO Paul Jablonski.


The schedule alternates between morning and afternoon performances at either the Euclid Avenue and 62nd Street Trolley Stations:

VERY loud music and talking from 5am. It got louder at 6.30am. I live up the hill on 63rd and I could hear it. I am a young, pregnant woman with a cold, on vacation so this has really upset me. Why not start at a decent hour like 10am or 5pm????? This is extremely rude. I called the cops but it hasnt lowered & now found this article, so had to comment. Its RIDICULOUS for them to start that early!!!! Shame on you >:(
