ALC’s founder, Debora Wondercheck, comes from humble
beginnings. As the youngest of seven children, Debora saw the
life-changing impact that music had on her family when she and
her siblings were all able to attend the universities of their choice
as string musicians.
Debora used her compassion to establish the Arts & Learning
Conservatory to give all children the same exposure to the arts
that she was afforded regardless of their background or experience.
ALC’s vision is to bring high-quality, accessible, and equitable
performing arts to all children throughout Southern California.
What began as a summer camp for thirteen string musicians and eight
Actors is has now grown to serve over 1,000 children every year
