The CB Save The Music concert began as the brainchild of Mr. Glaser and Mr. C (the choir guy and the band guy at Holicong) - both of whom were looking for an opportunity to perform for the kids. Once the idea was approved, they figured that attaching a worthwhile cause to the evening would draw more people to the show. With Mr. Sanchez (then the assistant choir director at Holicong) now on board, the three began to plan out the first ever "VH-1 Recital."
Those of you familiar with C, Glaser, and Sanchez will know that they never do anything "simply" or "easily," and this was the case here. Enlisting the help of many CB music teachers, musically inclined friends, and a full big band, the first show was a huge success. It was only after an e-mail from a parent suggesting that "recital" was too "boring" of a term for the show that we officially dubbed this event The VH-1 Save The Music Charity Concert. Recently, "VH-1" was dropped from the name of the Save The Music Foundation, so we are now known as the "CB Save The Music" Concert.
Over the years, the concert has continued to grow both in attendance and spectacle. We have since added 2 other "partners in crime" - Mrs. Repper (the orchestra director at Holicong) and Miss Romig (Holicong/East alum; Holicong Special Education teacher), expanded our audience, added a second and eventually a THIRD performance, a larger sound set-up, videos, and many more costumes to enhance the experience for all involved. However, please do not let the silliness fool you. Since its inception, we have donated over $250,000 to the Save The Music Foundation. In all seriousness, that is something we are very proud of, and we appreciate so much all of the support that the event has received. Here's to many, many more.......
