San Diego Ballet celebrates local music and dance with this unique 'Homegrown" presentation.

In the mid-1970s, local radio station 101 KGB held a contest for local songs about San Diego. The top 12 songs were featured on an album, known as Homegrown. San Diego Ballet Artistic Director, Javier Velasco, grew up in San Diego and was inspired by the music from this album. He brings these songs to life in this nontraditional ballet piece.

The program also features "My Blue Heaven" and "Other Songs from Grandma's Player Piano," a nostalgic look at romance by choreographer Matt Carney.

"Homegrown" runs Nov. 3 through 12. For additional details call (619) 294-7378.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
