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.
