Come To An American Music Extravaganza At Hartnell College

March 27th, 2003

The Hartnell College Foundation invites community members to an American Music Extravaganza on Friday, April 4th from 6:30 to 10 p.m. in Steinbeck Hall in the Hartnell College Campus Center. The cost is $25 per person and this includes wine, dinner, dancing and a full evening of American Music.

Hartnell College Music Instructor Dr. Carl Christensen said, "All six of our performing groups will be taking part in the Extravaganza, that means 150 performers." The groups are: the Hartnell College Orchestra; the Community Band; the Jazz Ensemble; the Community Chorus; the Hartnell College Choir; and the Chamber Singers.

Dr. Christensen said, "Each dinner course will be accompanied by a different music group. They will play a wide range of American music from cowboy songs to Broadway hits. The evening will conclude with dancing to the swing jazz of the Jazz Ensemble."

Proceeds will benefit the instrumental and choral music programs at Hartnell College. For further information and for tickets call the Hartnell College Foundation Office at (831) 755-6810.
