Concert Programs

As the Conservatory of Music strives to conserve resources and reduce paper waste, we have begun projecting concert programs in some of our performance venues. Therefore, we have made all of our concert programs available as electronic documents. Upcoming events, as well as archive programs dating back to the fall of 2009, are available for viewing and/or printing.

Honor Band & Orchestra Audition Prep Clinic

The Honor Band & Honor Orchestra Audition Preparation Clinic will be held on Saturday, October 8, 2022 starting at 9am. The clinic is designed to help students prepare for the California All-State, All-Southern, and All-County Band and Orchestra Auditions. Emphasis will be placed on solo preparation, tone production, technique development, scales, sight-reading strategies and audition readiness.

Feast of Lights

The Feast of Lights is one of the most recognizable and respected of our University’s traditions. Although presentations have differed slightly from year to year, the basic theme has remained constant: the story of the birth of Christ and the symbolic message of the star of Bethlehem as it led the Wise Men to the stable. At the service’s conclusion, the traditional Ceremony of Candles, adapted from an ancient rite, symbolizes the spreading of the light of Christ’s message by the twelve apostles throughout the world.
