GutierrezOn Saturday, February 8, Cajon High School student Erika Gutierrez will offer a public performance on violin at the San Bernardino County Museum. The 3 p.m. performance is included with paid museum admission.

“Doing a performance is part of my graduation requirement”, said Gutierrez, a sophomore at Cajon. “It’s a requirement for my IB music class.”

Gutierrez is a volunteer in the Education Division at the museum. She has logged over 100 hours of community service, helping prepare for and conduct public programming. She is involved with many in-school activities, and even composes music on the side.

“Erika is a dynamic volunteer, and a good role model for other youth who contribute their time,” said Jolene Redvale, curator of education and volunteer supervisor at the museum. “I told Erika I’d like her to compose a piece for marimba and violin, so we can play a duet. She agreed to work on it!”

The performance will take place in the Museum’s Schuiling Gallery. All visitors are welcome; young musicians and their families are encouraged to attend, since hearing other youth perform in public helps build confidence in their musical endeavors.
