Arts Brief

Choral Fest returns to Shoreline

More than 500 children from elementary and middle schools in Mountain View Whisman School District will take to the stage at Shoreline Amphitheatre on Monday, May 10 for the ninth annual Choral Fest.

The district-wide event, which takes place from 5 to 8 p.m., will showcase choruses from all the schools in the district, with each group singing one song, as well as performing the first and last songs of the night all together in a show of community.

This year's theme is "Everybody's Got a Song to Sing," which Choral Fest co-chair Kaye De Vries said "Captures the universal nature of music." Shoreline Amphitheatre, the Los Altos/Mountain View PTA Council, and Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) are sponsoring the concert.

Both admission and parking are free for the event, which takes place rain or shine. Gates open at 5 p.m., along with pre-concert performances on the lawn picnic area from the Crittenden and Graham jazz bands. The choral concert begins at 6:30 p.m. on the main stage.

The event is part of the Shoreline-CSMA Partnership in Commitment to Arts Education, an initiative formed in 2001 to promote the importance of arts education and to create opportunities for both organizations to develop community outreach events.

For more information, please contact Kaye DeVries of CSMA at, or visit, or
