The Moss Theater at New Roads – A Cultural Resource for Santa Monica and Beyond

Teens United Live!


Teens United Live

Teens United Live was created when two 14-year-old students from Crossroads School in Santa Monica heard that the funding for a local school’s music program had been cut. Bella Porter and Sol Was felt they could use their own musical talents to raise money for their peers. They gathered their musical friends and curated a benefit called Teens United Live. Teens United Live has a mission – to bring together the myriad of talented teen musicians from private schools in Los Angeles to stage musical events for their peers. Bella and Sol believe music should not be sacrificed due to financial hardship.
