The Santa

Monica-Malibu Unified School District will continue the 64th Annual Stairway

of the Stars in Barnum Hall tonight and Friday, March 8, on the Santa Monica High School campus in

Santa Monica.

This event remains one of the most popular annual events in both

the cities of Santa Monica and Malibu, as it spotlights the talents of the

district's music students, teachers, and music curriculum.

This year, 26

bands, orchestras, and choirs will dazzle the audience at the Stairway of the

Stars concerts. 

In previous years,

Stairway was held at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on Thursday and Friday

evenings, but due to the Civic’s recent closure, Stairway

will be held at Barnum Hall over three nights: Wednesday, March 6 (Orchestra

only), Thursday March 7 (Band only), and Friday March 8 (Choir only).

This year’s Stairway

concert will focus on the Choir program, and the guest conductor for the 2013

Stairway will be Dr. Chris Peterson.

General ticket sales are open to the public.

Remaining tickets are

for sale at $15 per ticket at Barnum Hall Box Office on the night of

each performance starting at 5:30 p.m.

Tonight, March 7, tickets will be sold for

the March 7 concert only; and on Friday, March 8, tickets will be sold

for the March 8 concert only.
