UPDATE: A keen reader noticed that I listed an incorrect web site for the Analy music boosters. The corrected address is shown below. Thanks, Jim.


Looking for some good music to enjoy this weekend? Upcoming is two days of live music from student musicians from Sonoma and Marin counties as part of the annual Fall Festival of Music hosted by Analy High School.

The bands and groups perform for free for the public, then are given a review and evaluation from a panel of judges from Bay Area college music programs. Experts this year include Eric Hammer of the University of the Pacific, Joe Perea of Santa Rosa Junior College and Martin Seggelke of San Francisco State University.

“It’s a terrific opportunity for students to get feedback from top-flight college directors early in the year when it can do the most good,” said Analy’s director of instrumental music, Vance Regan via an email.

Music will begin at 2:30 p.m. Friday and run until 8 p.m. On Saturday, the music begins at 9 a.m. and will run until 4 p.m. All performances are in the Analy auditorium and are free to the public.

Analy is located at 6950 Analy Ave. in Sebastopol.
