Music in the Parks 2020 Atlanta, GA

The trip is set for Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2 and we will travel to Atlanta, GA. We hope each student can participate so the Berry Band can perform at its best.  The Music in the Parks Festival provides an opportunity for our bands to be evaluated on the national standard.  A trip such as this can also create fond memories that last a lifetime.   Our band program builds "community" through performance opportunities.  Also, we will have a parent/chaperone meeting on Tuesday, April 7 at 6:30 in the cafeteria.
