Close to 200 people turned out to hear performances from the Muirlands Middle School Band, Muirlands String Ensemble, La Jolla High School Viking Band and the LJHS Contemporary Music Ensemble as well as various student solos, duets and trios.

With the help of Harvard Cookie Girl Cooking School, the event raised more than $1,700, said Michael Fiedler, instrumental music teacher at the two schools.

Muirlands band member Alec Ruiz De Castilla plays guitar and sings.
