39th Annual Forest Lawn Concert Series
April, 2024 - Issue #229

This year, the Paul T. Plew School of Music at The Master's University is putting on its 39th annual Forest Lawn Concert Series April 26 and April 27.
About 130 students - including the school's University Singers, Chorale, and Orchestra - will perform Mozart's "Requiem" inside the Hall of Crucifixion-Resurrection at Forest Lawn in Glendale. Audiences will enjoy Mozart's masterpiece under the massive backdrop of Jan Styka's painting, "The Crucifixion," which measures 195 by 45 feet.
Bekah Colson, an administrative assistant for TMU's School of Music and an alumna of the music department, says, "Forest Lawn is a favorite concert of our patrons because of the unique location and special time mourning and celebrating the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
Admission is free, but complimentary tickets must be reserved. For more information, visit
TMU to Produce "Tuck Everlasting" this Semester
The Theatre Arts program at The Master's University has another exciting production waiting behind the curtain. This spring, students will stage a musical based on the bestselling children's novel "Tuck Everlasting." Originally written by author and illustrator Natalie Babbit, it tells the story of an 11-year-old girl who longs for adventure. She finds more than she bargained for when she winds up with a family that has found the secret to eternal youth. But along the way, she learns that being young forever isn't all it's cut out to be.
Tricia Hulet, director of TMU Theatre Arts, said the production has a cast and crew of 43 students. She added that audiences can expect elaborate sets, singing and choreography. "The themes are fun. There's adventure. There's danger," Hulet said, "but beyond and underneath that, there are great themes of evaluating what really is the importance of life."
Shows will take place from April 5 to April 13 at TMU. Tickets can be purchased at
