Music in May is one of the longest running high school music festivals in the U.S. Join Pacific for the 74th annual Music in May concert at 3 p.m. Saturday, May 25, in the Stoller Center.

Participants rehearsed for three days under the tutelage of distinguished guest conductors culminating in the Saturday afternoon concert. This program represents not only the efforts of  more than 500 high school students, but also those of approximately 100 high school directors who have developed their students’ talents and recommended them for Music in May.

Music in May was founded in 1948 at Pacific University by Richard A. Greenfield to encourage the development of string music in the public schools of the Pacific Northwest. Band and choir were added at the suggestion of high school music directors, who saw in the festival a means of recognizing students whose service to their particular schools was especially noteworthy.
