The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District will continue the 64th Annual Stairway of the Stars in Barnum Hall tonight and Friday, March 8, on the Santa Monica High School campus in Santa Monica.
This event remains one of the most popular annual events in both the cities of Santa Monica and Malibu, as it spotlights the talents of the district’s music students, teachers, and music curriculum.
This year, 26 bands, orchestras, and choirs will dazzle the audience at the Stairway of the Stars concerts.
In previous years, Stairway was held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Thursday and Friday evenings, but due to the Civic’s recent closure, Stairway will be held at Barnum Hall over three nights: Wednesday, March 6 (Orchestra only), Thursday March 7 (Band only), and Friday March 8 (Choir only).
This year’s Stairway concert will focus on the Choir program, and the guest conductor for the 2013 Stairway will be Dr. Chris Peterson.
General ticket sales are open to the public.
Remaining tickets are for sale at $15 per ticket at Barnum Hall Box Office on the night of each performance starting at 5:30 p.m.
Tonight, March 7, tickets will be sold for the March 7 concert only; and on Friday, March 8, tickets will be sold for the March 8 concert only.
