The 10th Annual Mountain View Whisman School District Choral Fest, “With Music, Anything Is Possible,” is scheduled 5-8 p.m. Monday at Shoreline Amphitheatre, 1 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View.
Children from the district’s nine elementary and middle-school choruses will perform at this year’s event. Under the direction of choral directors from the Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) at the elementary level and middle-school music teachers, each school’s chorus will sing one song. The show will open and close with all of the choruses, approximately 500 youth, performing together.
“This year’s theme – “With Music, Anything Is Possible” – captures the joy that music provides regardless of who we are or where we live in the world. Music is a universal language that brings us all together,” said Kaye De-Vries, CSMA’s program manager of Music4Schools and Choral Fest co-chairwoman.
Admission and parking are free and open to the public. Choral Fest will take place rain or shine. Gates and concessions open at 5 p.m., with the concert scheduled at 6:30 p.m. on Shoreline’s Main Stage.
Attendees are invited to Shoreline Amphitheatre prior to the Choral Fest to picnic and socialize with students, families and community members. From 5 to 6 p.m. on the lawn picnic area, the Graham Middle School Dance Teams and Crittenden and Graham Jazz Bands will provide pre-show entertainment.
Co-sponsors of the event are the Mountain View Education Foundation, the Los Altos/Mountain View PTA Council and CSMA.
“The community is very fortunate to have resources and collaborative partnerships among organizations like Shoreline, CSMA, MVEF and the PTA Council,” DeVries said. “Choral Fest is a perfect example of the importance of continuing to foster relationships that benefit and highlight the accomplishments and hard work of young people.”
