Sunday, October 3rd

Whether it’s Bach, The Rolling Stones, or a lullaby, each of us is moved by music. In 2003, School-Force created the Save the Music Festival to bring the community together and help preserve music enrichment programs in our local public schools.   Since its inception, the Save the Music Festival has raised more than $400,000 through corporate sponsorships and community participation, funds that have been used to retain music teachers, develop music curriculum, and purchase music instruments. The results speak for themselves, with award-winning band and choir programs! Admission to the festival is free.

A donation of $5/adult and $2/child or senior is encouraged to offset festival expenses & ensure that every possible dollar goes to our schools.
