Singers Jose Feliciano and Burl Ives will headline the county's second annual Imagination Celebration Internationale concert May 10 at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, organizers have nnounced. The concert will be at 3 p.m.
Sponsored by the Historical and Cultural Foundation of Orange County and the Orange County Department of Education, the concert will be composed mostly of student dancers, singers and musicians from various ethnic community groups in Orange County.
Feliciano, a longtime Orange County resident and a 1986 Grammy Award winner, will appear for the first time in the multicultural event. Ives performed at the first Internationale held a year ago at the Santa Ana High School Auditorium. The veteran folk singer and Academy Award-winning actor is involved with numerous arts education programs, especially those affiliated with the John F.

The Internationale will be the final program in the Imagination Celebration, an arts-for-children festival. The Orange County festival is one of 26 regional sites for the Imagination Celebration program, sponsored nationally by the Kennedy Center.
