The Pioneer High School Choir will join again with the West Valley Chorus to stage a music show fundraiser at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at Pioneer, 1400 Pioneer Ave. in Woodland. This year’s theme is  “A Tribute to Great American Composers.”

Proceeds will go to Pioneer High’s music and theater arts programs, which have been impacted by budget cuts.

Janet Matranga, who has been teaching music for more than 20 years, is the Pioneer choir’s director. This is her first year at Pioneer.

The West Valley Chorus draws its 35 members, directed by Ollie Brilliants, from throughout the region, including Davis, Woodland, Dixon and Vacaville. The chorus qualified to compete in the Far Western District choral competition in Bakersfield, Oct. 17-20, by placing sixth overall and third in their plateau at a division competition March 23 in Lodi. The chorus also competed in 2011 and 2012 and was the 2011 Far Western District Plateau A champion.

The chorus is part of the Barbershop Harmony Society, a nonprofit organization that raises funds across the United States. Over the past 26 years, the West Valley Chorus has donated nearly $110,000 to schools in the Davis and Vacaville school districts to support school music programs. Now, Woodland schools have joined the beneficiary list.

The program will include “God Bless America,” “Alexander’s Ragtime Band,” “The Song has Ended,” “Mandy,” “Sweet Adeline” and “Lida Rose” (from “The Music Man”). Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door or by reservation; call Cotty Matal at 530-662-3291.
