A Day to Remember: 2018 POP Music Festival

The 3rd Annual Spring Pop Music Festival was another successful event hosted by CAPMT 1 SDSC on May 19, 2018 at Chula Vista Library Performance Hall, 365 F. St. Chula Vista, CA.

Twenty-eight music students (piano, voice, violin) representing five teachers of SDSC performed with The Royer’s Destroyers Band, a local professional band in San Diego. Repertoire ranged from standard classics, movie and Disney themes, Broadway musicals, jazz, and rags. It was a fun-filled music festival, with students practicing with the band in the morning and then leading and directing the band in their afternoon performance! The ninety-three audience members (family members and the general public) actively participated by filling up personalized compliment cards for their favorite student players. Performers also received participation medals and certificates to commemorate the event. Selected players, Mia and Anya Davis, and Brendon Sheen Ligason were invited to perform at the Honors Recital and Gala scheduled on June 9, 2018.
