The music never ends! Join us at our next big performance, A Night of Campo Jazz this Thursday, December 5th at 7:30 pm in the CPAC.
We hope to see you all there! As always, there will be a post-concert reception in the lobby so desserts to share will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for your support in making the Campo Music Program one of the best!
Donia and Sonja have completed the details regarding our big event coming up in February – the 2014 Jazz Dinner Dance! You will receive the invitations in the mail later to fill out and send back. This link will allow you to plan ahead – as you ponder gifts for family members and friends! This is an event that was “sold out” last year - you will want to invite lots of friends and definitely do not want to miss it!

“I want to do this again!”
“Can we go next year?”
Sound familiar? These were some of the initial comments from the music kids who had just returned from their 3-day trip to LA. What an event-packed trip that was! And clearly a success! It took months of planning on Mr. Johnson’s part, and his desire to provide a musically meaningful experience for as many kids in the program as possible clearly paid off fantastically! He planned it so well and organized it to the last detail. Listening to the LA Philharmonic surrounded by friends, recording (wow) at Disney, performing for the Veterans, just hanging out with friends at Disneyland… these are high school memories that will stay with our kids for years to come.
Thank you Mr. Johnson for a great trip! A huge THANK YOU also to Mrs. Sharon Bartlett and to all our chaperones - Mark Bellingham, Michael Gill, Danelle Johnson, Sonja Schoenwald, Kim Stephens and Keller Strother - without whom the trip would not have been possible! And THANK YOU to all parents, for your donations and efforts that made the trip feasible in the first place!
The Campolindo Orchestra and Symphonic Band are back from their memorable Veterans’ Day Trip to Los Angeles! Here is a photo of an enthusiastic fan with some of the Campo musicians following their performance at the Veterans’ Home of West Los Angeles.
