CP Choirs Present Summer of Love Concert

The award-winning College Park Choirs presents a Summer of Love pops concert of ‘60s music at 7pm on May 25 and 26. This groovy pops concert experience features music of the late ‘60s to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the hippie revolution in San Francisco. Musical selections include favorite hits by The Beatles, The Mamas & The Papas, The Turtles, Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and more. 

Fresh from their successes at the recent California Music Educators Association (CMEA) choir festival last month in Lafayette, CPHS choir director Bruce Rockwell explains the current high spirits of his choir students: "Everybody worked very hard this year, and our concert choir just garnered a 'Unanimous Superior' rating at the CMEA festival – the first time a College Park choir has brought home that distinction since the 1970s! Our spring pops concerts are always such a treat for our students and audiences, the perfect way to end a wonderful year of music making. And this year's Summer of Love theme is going to make for an especially fun and entertaining night for the Pleasant Hill community." 

The Summer of Love concert will be held in the College Park High School Multi-Use Room, and tickets are available online: $10 for adults, $5 for students, and free for children 7 and under. The choir program's spring pops concerts always play to sell-out crowds, so purchase your tickets in advance at to make sure you get in.
