Participation in the Community Concerts is not mandatory but are highly encouraged as they serve so well as dress rehearsals for your concerts that happen the next day! Please plan to sign up! The Community Concerts are usually held at the BridgePoint Senior Center (1174 Los Altos Ave., Los Altos), just a few blocks away from Santa Rita Elementary, your rehearsal site. There is no warm-up rehearsal prior to the concert.

Once again, participating in this event is highly encouraged and is a great opportunity for your players to serve the community. All the participants will be eligible for community service hours and will be given volunteer certificates signed by Ms. Kyme.
