On Monday, March 28, the Pacific Brass Band will hold a benefit concert for the  Mr. Ostenson's Save the Music Drive at Marguerite Maze Middle School on Meridian Street. (Memorial Drive is the cross street.)  The performance will start at 7 p.m.

According to its Web site, the Pacific Brass Band is one of a very few British brass bands that exist on the Pacific Coast, not including the Salvation Army bands. The band is composed of musicians from Santa Cruz, Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Clara counties. For more information about the band and the spring concerts, click over to its Web site.

The Mr. Ostenson's Save the Music Drive is sponsored by the  Rancho-Maze Middle School Band Boosters and the San Benito High School Band Boosters. Its goal is to raise $156,000 to fund the elementary school music program in the Hollister School District for two years. In December 2010, the The Hollister School District board voted to eliminate the elementary school music program after this school year because of lack of funds.
