Free MusicFest set for Valley Center’s Maxine Theater

Get ready to roll with Valley Center student musicians.

The Valley Center Pauma Music Boosters (VCPMB) 2016 MusicFest will be held Thursday, June 2 at the Maxine Theater. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with dinner and drumlines and leading into the concert time of 6:30 p.m.

The concert event is free for the community and will feature BBQ dinner and raffle item tickets for sale as part of the Valley Center Pauma Music Boosters ongoing fundraising efforts.Each year the group is chartered with supporting about 800 band and choir students at the elementary, middle and high school programs.

“Our school district does a great job of supporting the performing arts here in Valley Center so our task as music boosters is to help cover where the need arises, whether it is for purchasing new competition songs, special uniforms for drumline or busses for competitions,” said Diane Conaway, VCPMB president

“This year, the music students have outdone themselves,” Conaway continued, “ranking at the top at their various competitions and so you won’t want to miss the last free concert of the season where they will be showing off all their hard work.”

The Valley Center Middle and High School Drumlines will perform in the outdoor amphitheater in front of the Maxine lobby and guests are invited to buy their BBQ dinner and watch the performances in the 5:45- 6:15 p.m. window. The program will shift indoors into the Maxine Theater for the concert, marching and jazz bands complete with vocalists

Hamburger meals start at $6 and a special Boosters tri-tip dinner will be pre-sold at $25 a plate or $30 at the door — cash or credit card. Tri-tip dinner pre-sales are $25 cash or check, and are available at Joe’s Pet and Feed.

The Valley Center Pauma/Music Boosters is a non-profit organization, designed to support and maintain music in Valley Center schools.  Their funds purchase and maintain hundreds of instruments for hundreds of 5th to 12th graders.

The Boosters also provide the supportive funds necessary for the students to participate in competitions.

The VCPMB annual goal is nearly $100,000 to cover expenses of these programs, including uniforms and performance clothing. Membership is as low as $5 a year, and members receive event information and updates.
