LAFAYETTE ROTARY CLUB
2017 CONCERT AT THE RES
At the Lafayette Reservoir
Saturday, May 13 – 11:00am to 3:00pm
LAFAYETTE, CA – March 28,, 2017- Since 1994, Lafayette Rotarians have been hosting an afternoon of music each Spring featuring local bands including Acalanes High School, Stanley Middle School, Bentley School and the Big Band of Rossmoor. This annual concert was conceived by local Rotarian Dick Holt to raise money to support Lafayette schools music programs, and to provide a venue where local musicians could entertain the community at our beautiful Lafayette reservoir. The Lafayette Rotary Club annually produces the Concert at the Res, and, with help from the Lafayette Community Foundation, raised the money to fully fund the community stage at the Lafayette reservoir for use by the entire community.
This year’s event includes the award-winning jazz combo from Acalanes, the Rossmoor Big Band/Generations in Jazz, the Bentley High Jazz combo, the Stanley middle school Symphonic Orchestra who will be joined this year by the Westlake Middle school from Oakland, the stunning dancers from the Lamorinda Theatre Academy, and the talented Town Hall Education performers.
Along with the great live music and dancing, there will be food and beverages available. The stage is adjacent to a shady picnic area, public restrooms and the children’s playground. Once you have parked, walk East (to your left) towards the reservoir trail. The Stage is about 150 feet from the parking lot. Golf cart transport will be available to and from the stage area. Raffle tickets will also be available to purchase with great prizes including weekend get-a-ways. The proceeds are used to fund the Rotary Clubs public service projects and local school music programs.
This annual event, FREE TO THE PUBLIC, is presented by the Lafayette Rotary Club and is financially sponsored by Diablo Foods, Oakwood Athletic Club, Cortese Investments, Lafayette Car Wash and Detail Center, Concord BMW, Minuteman Press, Lamorinda Weekly, Orchard Nursery, and the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, and the generosity of many local and anonymous individuals.
