Feb 25, 2016 12:29PM ● Published by Jennifer Neys

2015's Area Music Festival at College Park High School

College Park High School will host two area music festivals for band and orchestra, featuring middle and elementary school musicians of Pleasant Hill.

These concerts include students from Gregory Gardens Elementary, Hidden Valley Elementary, Pleasant Hill Elementary, Sequoia Elementary, Strandwood Elementary, and Valhalla Elementary. The high school musicians, directed by Jorge Jimenez, along with middle school musicians from Pleasant Hill Middle, directed by Mundy Viar, Sequoia Middle, directed by Jennifer Batson, and Valley View Middle, directed by Nick Cooper, will perform.

The Area Band Concert, which includes performances by the concert band, symphonic band and wind ensemble, as well as the middle school and elementary school students, will be on March 7. The Area Orchestra Concert includes performances by the CPHS string orchestra, chamber and symphony orchestras, as well as the middle school and elementary school orchestras will be on March 14. Both concerts begin at 7pm, in Hurtado Gym on the College Park High School campus. 

These concerts are a great opportunity to hear the development of musicianship through the years. It also marks the beginning of the return of 4th grade music instruction in the Mount Diablo School District after a year’s-long absence. Fifth grade music instruction was reinstated in the 2014-2015 school year. Both concerts are free of charge.
