VC Musicians Create Patriotic Musical Tribute

The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters will hold their second annual free Veteran’s Day Concert on Wednes­day, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. with doors open­ing at noon for snacks, treats and meal items for purchase.

This program has been continuously offered as a community service by the band and choir students of Valley Center Middle and High Schools.

“Each year, several hundred of our performing arts students are inspired to share their talents during their day off from school, to recognize the contribu­tions of all service members,” said Di­ane Conaway, Music Boosters president. “Come early, as seats fill fast and be sure to stay for the finale, which features all groups in a medley to salute all Ameri­can Forces.”

The award-winning Valley Center Middle School Thunderhawk and High School Jaguar Jazz Bands will feature classic big band sounds, showcasing several vocalists. The VCHS Roaring Jaguar Marching Band and Drumline groups rock the house with their arrival and performance.

The award-winning VCHS Concert Band, along with the VC Middle School and High School Choirs will showcase patriotic selections. The event is spon­sored in part by Left Coast Engineering and RE/MAX United.

The Valley Center/Pauma Music Boosters budget for everything to sup­port about 700 students at five schools – from performance and competition at­tire, musical instrument purchases and repairs – so that no student misses the opportunity to pursue his or her pas­sion. The group provides transportation to numerous competitions; and adds a trailer to carry all the items the perform­ers need.

“Our role with the VCP Music Boost­ers is to support Valley Center’s music program instructors and students as they continually raise the bar in their musical achievements in both band and choir” added Conaway.

The Valley Center Pauma/Music Boosters is a nonprofit, volunteer or­ganization designed to support music in Valley Center and Pauma Schools. They are currently challenging the Val­ley Center Community to raise $100,000 this school year to help the students reach their growing audience, including invited performances at places like Dis­neyland and Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Anyone can become a booster mem­ber and contribute to this goal. The Boosters also organize many fundrais­ing opportunities throughout the year: Krispy Kreme doughnut sales, cookie dough sales, and spring events, includ­ing the Jazz Benefit and the VC Mu­sicFest & BBQ Cook-off.

The profits generated at concert con­cessions stands are used to support the students’ endeavors. For more informa­tion about the Valley Center/Pauma Mu­sic Boosters, visit, email: contactus@vcpmusicboost­ Please like Valley
