Celebrate the Music Festival - 2022

The Celebrate the Music (formerly Save the Music) Festival is back! After a two and a half year hiatus, we are thrilled to once again share the gift of music with the Belmont and Redwood Shores community. Three continuous stages will present Band, Orchestra, and Choral Music from BRSSD Elementary and Middle School students, and Carlmont High School. Community singers, dancers, and theater groups will perform, along with local favorites Sinister Dexter and the Montgomery-Coe Band, featuring the Belmont Horns. The Carlmont Drum Line will perform, and run their Percussion Clinic for young musicians. As a grand finale, the Stanford Marching Band has challenged the Carlmont Pep Band to a Battle of the Bands!
