CHS, El Roble bands to showcase talent with concert
The public is invited to “Take Note!” and watch the Claremont High School Marching Band perform its full competition program at a free concert on Saturday, September 28 at the CHS athletic field from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
Sponsored by the Claremont High School Instrumental Music Boosters, the show will also feature the CHS Orchestra and the CHS Jazz Band, plus the El Roble Intermediate School band and orchestra, all performing under the lights on the athletic field.
Band instructor Melanie Gonzalez, known to her students as “Mrs. G,” is excited to highlight these talented musicians who have been rehearsing during summer camps and now into the school year.
“We are so fortunate in Claremont to have a community that enjoys public music through the Concerts in the Park,” she said. “Now that that series is over, we are ready to showcase our student performers for friends, family, neighbors and the public.”
The Claremont High School Marching Band will perform their entire 3-part program for the upcoming marching band field competitions to be held throughout southern California during the coming October and November. The evening will feature snacks and refreshments, an opportunity drawings and the chance to sponsor “Shout Out” messages over the loudspeakers to performers or guests.
Various school booster club and spirit organizations will have booths promoting CHS spirit wear and other fundraising opportunities. CHS Instrumental Music Boosters will also be accepting donations for their annual “Take Note!” campaign to raise money to support the music program. The gates open at 6 p.m. and the music starts at 6:45 p.m.
