HeartBEAT Festival at Sontag Greek Theater to take place on Saturday

This week, the HeartBEAT Festival will make its way into the Sontag Greek Theatre with the help of a few musical guests, Steph Johnson and her choir, Voices of Our City.

The November 6 festival, hosted by OPARC, is a fundraiser for the organization dedicated to making “training, employment, and social opportunities available” for all disabled persons. In addition, the event will raise awareness for Johnson’s nonprofit choir, “which benefits people experiencing the hardships of homelessness,” according to OPARC.

Headlining the musical afternoon will be Steph Johnson and her band, a local group who perform a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and blues tunes. The event will also feature Voices of Our City, which in 2020 received the golden buzzer on America’s Got Talent, and the MLC band.

The event will take place between 3 and 6 p.m. and residents are invited to enjoy the music, food, craft ales and raffles at the small concert. For registration or to view the various sponsorships tiers, visit http://www.oparc.org/event/heartbeatfest.

The Sontag Greek Theatre is located at 300 E. Bonita Ave. in Claremont, on the Pomona College campus. The theater sits east of the Byron Dick Seaver Theatre Complex.
