Point Loma High School Students Perform at Humphrey’s by the Bay

| April 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

On May 18, the public is invited to the Point Loma High School (PLHS) Instrumental Music program by attending Rhapsody on the Point at Humphrey’s by the Bay. The students hope to raise $20,000 at the concert and fundraiser, which is also a celebration of the opening of the new Music Center at PLHS – the culmination of six years of fundraising, advocacy, and endless patience.

The San Diego Unified School District provides funding only for director James Sepulvado’s salary, while the program must cover expenses for music, instruments, instruction, uniforms, transportation, and competition fees at an annual cost of $70,000 – and the program is growing.  Rhapsody on the Point will help to bridge the funding gap through ticket sales, sponsorships and from money raised by the sale of fabulous auction items offered the evening of the event.

The evening begins at 6 p.m. with hors d’ oeuvres, cocktails and a silent auction. The concert begins at 7:00 p.m.. General Admission and premium Cabaret table seating is available on the website, www.rhapsodyonthepoint.com ($45 General Admission; $80 for two; cabaret tables from $250 – $1000).

The program will continue a tradition of performing “Rhapsody in Blue” every five years. This year, San Diego pianist Diane Snodgrass will do the honors and also perform a solo piece. Dr. Snodgrass has served as pianist for the San Diego Master Chorale and presently as accompanist for the San Diego Masterwork Chorale.
