L.A.-Style Welcome Planned for NLC's Local Elected Officials.

To kick-off the opening of the National League of Cities program, the city of Los Angeles will stage a high-energy, live entertainment production entitled "Los Angeles -- It's All Right Here." Scheduled for Thursday, December 2, at 8:30 a.m. in Hall K at the Los Angeles Convention Center, this musical, dance and theatrical production will feature a number of segments that showcase the lifestyle, culture, recreation and diversity of the host city.

The Skate Squad provides a rolling tribute to L.A.'s outdoor, energetic lifestyle in "A Day in the Life of LA." Think sun, the beach, outdoor recreation and more.

The event also includes "America's Love Affair with Hollywood," a nostalgic look at Hollywood performed by Rock Theatre -- one of the hottest young groups in L.A. The performance will include classics of Old Hollywood, as well as today's mega hits.

Los Angeles has more live theater than any other metropolitan city and an abundance of cultural institutions, such as the new Getty Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. This city of culture will literally come to life as Acrobazia, a troupe which has enjoyed a run with Cirque du Soleil, renders a stunning cultural interpretation through music, dramatic movement and acrobatics.

This production will culminate with a grand finale featuring an inspirational rendition of "I Believe I Can Fly," performed by The Reverend Quincy Fielding Choir, led by featured artist Oren Waters.

This opening event will not only welcome delegates, but will truly set the tone for what promises to be a most rewarding and memorable National League of Cities conference.

The City of Los Angeles wishes to thank its sponsors, including American Airlines, AT&T, BP Amoco and Staples Center for making this event possible.

The National League of Cities Opening Production has been coordinated by the Los Angeles Convention & Visitors Bureau.
