The Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) celebrates the music programs of the Carlsbad
Unified School District (CUSD) at its annual Carols of Carlsbad event.

Students in CEF’s elementary music program, as well as middle and high school students in
choir, band and orchestra, perform holiday carols at the Tree Lighting Ceremony at Omni La
Costa Resort & Spa. Stay for carols, enjoy complimentary cookies, cocoa, and holiday festivities– including a visit from skydiving Santa!

The Carlsbad Educational Foundation funds music programs at every CUSD school. In the 2019-20 school year, CEF granted more than $350,000 to CUSD for music education, including:

  • A dedicated music teacher in every elementary school to instruct weekly K-5 music
    classes
  • Middle and high school music equipment and instrument repairs
  • Middle and high school music coaches and specialists
  • High school spring musicals and theater operations assistants

Carols of Carlsbad is a free event to say thank you to our community of parents, businesses, and
partners who help ensure music is part of the excellent educational provided by the CUSD.

You may support music and more than 35 other programs by donating to the Carlsbad
Educational Foundation. Every donation of just $50 provides one week of music instruction to an entire K-5 class. Make a gift online today: www.CarlsbadEd.org/Donate.
