An angel sculpture painted by Carol Worthey to represent the power of music and to inspire children of all ages to listen and learn more about music.  Part of a citywide exhibit, "Angel of Music" was on display in front of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in 2001, seen by over 600,000 people from all over the world, and voted "Most Popular Statue", as well as being featured in a LA Times Bestselling Book.

The front, in bright colors, shows all the instruments that play in the music (composed by Carol) that plays from a special statue base; the torso is a cello with a Treble Clef heart. The back, pastels, has feathers with the names of 165 famous composers, from Opera to Blues. Two large gold hearts on the backs of the wings have the music notes and lyrics in full, so that people can sing along, or perhaps get inspired to learn to read music.

The "Angel of Music" song played from a special statue base at the press of a button. This is Carol's first venture into combining music for the ears and art for the eyes into one unified work.
