Northgate Orchestra and Band on the Run

Fundraiser Featuring Award-Winning Northgate Combos Benefits Local Music Program

There’s something exhilarating about listening to live music -- toes tap, hearts thump, and there is a feeling of electricity in the air. Add dinner, adult beverages, and an exciting auction, and you have a party on your hands – which is exactly what the third annual “Orchestra and Band on the Run” fundraising event offers, starting 6pm on Saturday, March 4, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Lafayette.

“The event recaptures the feeling you get when visiting a nice club where a tight band is playing, the lights are low, and you become part of the music,” said Scott Haney, who, along with his wife, Debra, came up with the idea for the event two years ago.

Performances by Northgate High School’s award-winning Jazz Combo I, Jazz Combo II and String Quartet, as well as a jazz combo featuring stellar Foothill Middle School musicians, will highlight the evening, as top-flight craft beer is served from Calicraft Brewing in Walnut Creek and fine wine is offered from Duvin Wine Bar in Oakland. Afterward, Scott Haney will be spinning dance music to round out the evening.  

Sponsored by the Northgate Instrumental Music Boosters, the goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase and repair musical instruments, fund transportation and entry fees to music festivals, and buy music scores and other related music equipment. 

“Last year’s sold-out event helped to raise much needed funds for the program,” said Debra Haney.  “This year, we have an even bigger need for sustaining this nationally-recognized program.”

Tickets are $50 and go on sale February 4 through Brown Paper Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2727182.
