The School-Force Save the Music Festival will be held this Sunday, Oct. 6 from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. in Twin Pines Park.
For the 11th straight year, the pipers will pipe, the drummers will drum, and the entire community will come together in Twin Pines Park for the ultimate jam session--School-Force's Save the Music Festival.
STM organizer Alan Sarver summed up this year's event this way: "Bigger and better."
Bigger in that the KFOX-sponsored tribute stage will be prominently located on Sixth Avenue near Belmont City Hall; and better in that there will be more music and activities than ever before.
With four stages, 25 musical groups and over 1,000 performers guests will have plenty to choose from on this one spectacular autumn afternoon.
Four stages of music featuring:
- Top Bay Area tribute bands: Sun Kings (Beatles), Caravanserai (Santana), and Evolution (Journey)
- Musicians, Choirs & Dance Troupes from local elementary, middle & high Schools
- The Carlmont High School Drum Line
- Marching Bands from Stanford & UC Davis
- Future Stars of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District - Talented young musicians from our elementary & middle schools performing solo & chamber group pieces
Watch for an upcoming Patch article with a complete list of activities, food vendors and musical acts.
STM is the primary event of the year for the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District's education foundation. Sarver says its an opportunity for School-Force to bring the gift of music to the community.
The charge of STM is trifold: to bring an annual event to the Belmont community that celebrates the arts in the city's schools; to highlight the financial needs of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District; and to thank the business community for their support of the schools throughout the year.
This year's main sponsors are Oracle and KFOX 102.1 FM. For a complete list of sponsors and a schedule of activities, click here.
Suggested donation for entrance to the Festival is $10 per adult and $5 per child, to help offset festival expenses and ensure that every possible dollar goes to Belmont and Redwood Shores public schools.
The Festival will be held Sunday, Oct. 6 from 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m. in Twin Pines Park and along Sixth Avenue near Belmont City Hall.
