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 VCPMusicBoosters.org, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please like Valley
