The Davis High School Concert Band and Symphonic Band will perform in the annual adjudication concert at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Brunelle Performance Hall at DHS, 315 W. 14th St. This event offers the audience a peek behind the scenes to observe how music festival adjudicators evaluate performing groups.

The guest adjudicator for the event is Eric Hammer, director of bands at the University of the Pacific in Stockton. Following the concert presentation by each band, the audience can listen in as Hammer passes along his advice and comments to the group.

Donations will be accepted at the door.

Three music recitals planned Sunday

The Music Teachers’ Association of California, Yolo County Branch, presents three recitals featuring piano and string students who received honors recognition for their participation in the Certificate of Merit program recently in Davis.

Certificate of Merit, established in 1934, is a “total musicianship” syllabus that guides teachers to help their students develop proficiency in the art of making music. In Yolo County, 260 students participated in the program this year.

The Branch Honors recitals will take place Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, 27074 Patwin Road. Recitals are at 2, 3:30 and 5 p.m. Admission is free, and a reception will follow each recital.

For details about the recitals or about the Music Teachers’ Association of California, call Marceline Lee at (530) 574-1658.
