AVPA presents spring concert


The Culver City High School Academy of Visual and Performing Arts will present its annual Spring Music Concert on Thursday, May 26 in the Robert Frost Auditorium.  Parents, students, and the entire Culver City community are welcome to come and enjoy an evening of great music.

The concert will feature the Culver City High School Concert Band, as well as the AVPA Chamber Singers, String Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, and Jazz Combos.  The Concert Band, the Chamber Singers, and the Jazz Combos will also be performing at the Music in the Parks Music Festival on Saturday, May 21, and will present their festival pieces at the spring concert.

The String Ensemble, directed by Dr. Tania Fleischer, recently performed at the AVPA Spring Dance Concert in collaboration with AVPA dance students, featuring two movements of Capriccio Espagnol by Rimsky-Korsakov. The Percussion Ensemble was also featured at the Spring Dance Concert in two works with dancers.

The Jazz Combos have also been performing throughout the year.  Two combos recently performed at the Culver City Education Foundation’s Tribute to the Stars at Sony Pictures Studios. One of the other four combos performed at a private wedding last month, which also featured members of the Culver City High School marching band.

The AVPA music ensembles will also be featured at the AVPA annual Java Gala benefit production on June 3 at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, sponsored by the AVPA Foundation.

Please note the earlier start time of 6:30 p.m. Admission to the Spring Concert is a requested donation of $5, but no one will be turned away.  Please come out and support our outstanding student musicians and celebrate the finale for our seniors as they prepare to graduate.
