The Campbell Union High School District Music Festival began in 1972 in the Campbell High School Auditorium, which is now the renovated Heritage Theater. The event has become an annual tradition and is unprecedented in the Santa Clara Valley and throughout the state of California. The performance brings together all musicians in the Campbell Union High School District, giving every participant, no matter what their level, a chance to perform in this grand musical event. It is a chance for the participants to meet their peer musicians and share their common love of music.
