The Westview Performing Arts Department proudly presents the Westview Performing Arts Gala “Artistically Speaking,” a collaborative show featuring the award-winning band, choir, dance, guard, orchestra, and theatre departments. The gala is set for Jan. 19 at Poway Center for the Performing Arts, with doors opening at 7 p.m. “The gala will support the school’s performing arts programs by raising needed funds to improve the Westview Theater and provide first-rate performing arts education to our students,” stated Westview Choral Director Crystal Stone. An online silent auction will immediately proceed what Crystal expressed as “a huge community event and performance that cannot be missed.” Additional highlights include a reception, distinguished guest appearances, and more. Tickets to the gala range from $30 to $40 and can be purchased online. For more information about ticket pricing and performances visit
