The Stockton Symphony’s free after-school music enrichment program at Marshall Elementary School, Harmony Stockton, presents its winter concert on Wednesday, December 18, at 6:00 p.m. The concert by the third- through sixth-grade students will be held at Faye Spanos Concert Hall on the University of the Pacific campus, 3601 Pacific Avenue, Stockton.
The concert is free and open to the public; donations are accepted. The students’ performance will be followed by a reception and community potluck dinner at 7:00 p.m.
This is the students’ fifth concert presentation of the school year, which included a well-attended event at the Mexican Heritage Center in November and El Concilio of Stockton’s fundraising event at the Civic Auditorium in December! The students will have an additional performance the afternoon of December 20 at an assembly at Marshall Elementary School. Parents or potential sponsors interested in attending can contact Scott McColl, Lead String Instructor and Coordinator of Harmony Stockton, at (209) 951-0196.
Harmony Stockton is a free daily after-school music education program combining two hours of music instruction with academic tutoring and regular public performance to assist young students in developing life skills toward personal, academic, and social success. It is a partnership of the Stockton Symphony, Stockton Unified School District, University of the Pacific, and the United Way of San Joaquin County. It is one of only 55 El Sistema-inspired programs in the United States seeking to translate the inspiration of El Sistema in Venezuela to American communities and educational structures.
