College Park High School music students, family members, staff and community members are expected to gather 600 strong at the Concord Hilton on Saturday, October 18, for the 14th Annual Musicians Showcase to raise funds for CPHS Instrumental Music. More than 200 students in six ensembles will perform music centered on this year’s theme, “All That Jazz!”

The Musician’s Showcase is a dinner and auction event organized by the College Park Instrumental Music Boosters (CPIMB) to raise funds to pay for music, festival fees and transportation, uniforms, instrument repairs and purchases, and to support travel. “Last year we had record attendance of 360 guests, and over 200 musicians performed. We sold out a week before showcase,” says 2014 Showcase Chairperson and CPIMB President Kathy Kaminek. “It is very encouraging to see such enthusiastic support from parents and our community. It’s an exciting and inspiring event and you can’t beat the entertainment.”  The evening will be filled with toe-tapping jazz performances by award-winning College Park ensembles. Beginning at 7pm, Instrumental Music Director Jorge Jiménez will conduct College Park ensembles, including the Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, String Orchestra, Symphony Orchestra, and Jazz Ensemble as they play a rich line-up of jazz favorites from Count Basie, Gershwin, Dizzy Gillespie and more. The Musician’s Showcase will feature silent and live auctions, a dessert auction, a musician’s auction highlighting student creativity and skills, and the greatly anticipated raffle.

“Our students will be in the community performing in small ensembles and selling raffle tickets at local stores and at the Pleasant Hill Art, Jazz and Wine Festival,” says Raffle Coordinator Beth Macy, “We do this every year and find that the community is so incredibly supportive of our program.” This year’s prizes are: first prize - a $2500 vacation package to New Orleans; second prize - a $1500 value of Monterey Jazz tickets and accommodations for two; and third prize - a $500 value of dinner and jazz at Yoshi’s for four.

In 2011, Mr. Jorge Jiménez became the instrumental music director at College Park. Under his leadership, the program has grown and regained vitality in the aftermath of music director turnover and financial challenges due to 2009 state budget cuts to education. “Our program has not only grown in numbers, it has grown in the way we interact with our school and community. The strongest communities are those that foster an attitude of service and mutual helpfulness for the greater good,” says Mr. Jiménez. “I want to help students learn and understand that they have gifts and talents to share with their community.” The event is from 5pm-10pm.
