Samohi Concert Bands Performing at Broad Stage

 

The Santa Monica High School Concert Bands, now in their 99th year, will be performing a benefit concert at the Broad Stage, on Wednesday, March 26, at 7:00pm. 

 

Long considered one of the premier high school bands in the country, the Wind Ensemble was invited to perform in the 2013 Chicago International Music Festival at Chicago Symphony Center.

 

Each of the last two years, students have been selected to participate in the United States National Youth Orchestra. 

 

This year’s performance, benefiting a program that serves 300 band students, will include a celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Gettysburg Address.
