Students make noise for arts


Michael Epstein (right), a senior at Malibu High School who will attend the Berklee School of Music this fall, on May 30 performed at the Education Foundation’s “For The Arts” benefit concert with Dave Mason and Mark Harris from “Venice.” The concert, held at Santa Monica High School, raised funds for arts programs in the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District and featured performances by Billy Idol and the school district’s high school orchestra, choir and jazz band students.
