The Vanguard Community Arts Initiative was launched in 2013, with the goal of bringing quality music education and performance to our community. Seeing first hand the difference music has made in the lives of our 5,000+ alumni, we wanted to do more to support the next generation of Bay Area. musicians. In celebration of our rich 50-year history of musical excellence expanding the opportunities that are geared toward community music involvement?

Over the past two years, Santa Clara Vanguard has drastically increased the size and scope of the Community Arts Initiative in order to meet the growing demand for stronger music education in the region. We believe that providing a well-rounded education for all children is one of the most effective ways to fight poverty. Education equips children to improve and sustain their own futures, as well as the futures of their community.

To compliment our many music education programs, we also have a number of ensembles that perform regularly at community events throughout the year. Most recently we put together a small pep band ensemble to play at the Super Bowl 50 Celebration at Santa Clara University in February.
