Returning to The Broad Stage after a 3-year hiatus, the Samohi Bands is proud to present “Bands at the Broad,” a concert and fundraiser benefitting the combined Wind Ensemble and Chamber Orchestra performance tour in Ireland in the spring of 2023.
On February 7, 2023, the Samohi Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble will perform under the direction of Kevin McKeown.
The concert begins at 8:00 PM, but doors open at 6:30 PM for our raffle, wine bar, and silent auction. We hope to see you there!

Since 2013, the Samohi Bands at the Broad benefit concert and silent auction has raised money to support the Samohi Concert Band tour scholarship fund. Each February, our guests gather at the beautiful Eli and Edythe Broad Stage in Santa Monica to mix and mingle over a cash wine bar, bid in the silent auction, enjoy cupcakes at intermission, and watch a concert featuring the Samohi Wind Symphony and Wind Ensemble under the direction of Kevin McKeown.

Bands at the Broad raises much-needed scholarship funds for our high-school musicians to go on tours, where they perform, engage in cultural exchange, and visit historical sites in new cities. This enriching program would not be possible without the many contributions of our Samohi Band families, both big and small.
