Free concert and ballet performance in Chula Vista
Did you know that last year Forbes rated Chula Vista as “America’s Most Boring City”? Of course Chula Vista is going to seem boring if you have never experienced the culture.
Chula Vista is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States and happens to be only twenty minutes away from literally everything. To make it even more interesting, a group of performing art professionals are out to change Forbes’ mind.
A free concert contradicting that unfavorable image will be presented on Oct. 23rd at 7:30 PM at New Hope Community Church in Chula Vista. The night will feature the City Ballet Orchestra (under the direction of John Nettles). City Ballet dancers will perform excerpts from Giselle and The Nutcracker for your viewing pleasure. It is sure to be a great performance, as the troupe was named “San Diego’s most professional” by the San Diego Union-Tribune. Principal dancers from that respected company will perform excerpts from Giselle, and The Nutcracker.
Here’s a taste of what you might be able to expect (on a smaller, more intimate scale, of course):
The Bunnell Strings, a family act, will also perform. Family members range from ages ranging from 14-21 and are local rising stars who have performed at many regional concert stages and television events. Their musical talent is inspirational and extremely impressive.
Admission to this magnificent concert is free, but donations will be accepted and all proceeds will benefit the City Ballet Music Program and the Scholars Music Project. This ballet program brings classical music instruction to under served elementary school students; and the music project, which will be launched next year in South Bay elementary schools, endeavors to create social change through sustainable music education.
Did you know that the month of October is National Arts and Humanities Month? It is a celebration throughout the nation to appreciate our culture. This concert offers a great opportunity for the community to come enjoy an evening of free performing arts.
This concert will undoubtedly put to rest any notion that Chula Vista is other than stellar and is anything but boring!
