Several students at Tracy-area schools will perform Saturday in the San Joaquin County Middle School Honors Concert

The concert is free to attend and begins at 7 p.m. at Warren Atherton Auditorium at San Joaquin Delta College, 5151 Pacific Ave., in Stockton.

Students auditioned to participate, and 183 of the 245 applicants were accepted — 42 in the choir, 80 in the band and 61 in the orchestra. Among them are 33 students from Tracy and Mountain House.

They will be conducted by Ruth Brittin, program director and professor of music education at University of the Pacific; Joan Calonico, retired principal of Don Riggio School in Stockton; and Geremie Romeo Rebustillo, a teacher in Lincoln Unified School District in Stockton.
