To Concert Goers,

The Chabot-Las Positas Community College District has temporarily suspended high-volume events until further notice. If you are required to attend live concerts for a music course, please contact your instructor for updated polices and options. 

This suspension includes the Jazz Band Concert on March 12th and the Choral Concert on March 18th. We are no longer selling tickets for these events and removed the ability to purchase tickets for these shows. We will be refunding everyone who has already purchased a ticket. The Jazz Band Concert will continue to perform without an audience, but recorded and uploaded to a link. The Jazz Band Concert link will be sent to you by your instructor, and you will use the video to write your concert reviews. The link for the Jazz Band Concert will be ready by Friday, March 13. 
Note: Special Guest Bobby Shew will not be performing. 

We will begin to use our website to post updated concert information. If you have any other questions, reach out to Beeh Keo at for ticketing questions. 


Whether you are aiming for a degree in music, or wanting to develop your skills to work in the music industry, or just further your understanding and appreciation of the musical arts, the Chabot College Music Department offers courses to serve your every interest and need. The faculty is comprised of accomplished performers, academics, composers, recording engineers, producers, and authors, who offer their students exceptional instruction in one or more of our 50 courses in music literature, applied music, recording and technology and performance ensembles.
To aid in the positive development of the whole person the music faculty and curriculum pursue the following goals:
  1. To provide an environment in which performance, composition, musical literacy and technology are integrated. The synthesis of these elements will prepare the student for a musical career as a performer, writer, teacher, producer, engineer, or business person.
  2. To offer a coherent musical education curriculum that provides knowledge and understanding of all musical forms and styles. Students should be able to recognize the importance of music to their society and enable them to have a more informed worldview.
  3. To recognize music as a multi-cultural and multi-national Art which fosters, through its performance, a respect for the diversity of all peoples, beliefs, and expressions.
  4. To help students to see education as a learning process which permits one to see and think clearly and that this process is of greater importance than the transfer of information from teacher to student.​
