ENCINITAS — Talented high school musicians will participate with members of the Coastal Communities Concert Band at a “Salute to Young Musicians” performance at 2 p.m. May 1 at San Dieguito Academy, 800 Santa Fe Drive.
Selected by directors from four San Dieguito Union High School District bands, the young musicians will join some 85 adult members of the Coastal Communities Concert Band in a program of popular music. One music scholarship of $1,500 and four music scholarships of $750 each will be awarded during the 2 p.m. concert.
In an outreach education program currently under way through May 24, members of the band visit third grade classes in the district and introduce them to the baritone horn, clarinet, flute saxophone, trombone and trumpet. Each of the approximately 850 third-graders has a chance to try playing each of the instruments.
Under the direction of Robert Fleming, the Coastal Communities Concert band annually performs about eight programs throughout North County.
