Kaiser Permanente High School Notes A Cappella premieres online

Friday, November 20 at 7 pm Pacific

Enjoy a cappella music at the first-ever High School Notes, presented by Kaiser Permanente. This digital concert emceed and directed by Deke Sharon, producer of NBC’s “The Sing-Off” and arranger/director/producer of Universal’s “Pitch Perfect” trilogy, will feature local high schools from across the Diablo Region and be professionally mixed and edited for at-home enjoyment. High School Notes will support local music educators and provide a healing musical outlet for students and viewers alike.

During this unprecedented global pandemic, the arts are critical to our health and well-being. The Diablo Regional Arts Association (DRAA) is committed to continuing our support by safely connecting people in the community with the arts they love. Modeled after our sell-out College Notes A Cappella program, High School Notes is a new project aimed at outreach and engagement for local high school students, teachers, families, and communities.
