CHS, El Roble musicians to turn up the lights

The community is invited to the third annual “Concert Under the Lights,” to be performed on Saturday, September 26 in the stadium at Claremont High School on Indian Hill Boulevard.

The show will feature the talent of the El Roble Band and Orchestra as well as the CHS Marching Band.

The concert starts at 5 p.m., with the gates opening at 4:30 p.m. The concert is free but food and beverages will be available for purchase. All proceeds will support the instrumental music programs at CHS and El Roble, which are in need of some new instruments, sheet music and instrument repair. 

The program, which will feature 260 students in 7th through 12th grade, will include the CHS Marching Band’s fall show, “Chaos! At the Cinema.” The dazzling production is a mash-up of music from seven blockbuster movies, with selections from the Harry Potter films, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jaws, Star Wars and ET. The CHS Orchestra, El Roble Band and String Orchestra will play a mixture of pop songs and classic pieces.
