The Austin History Center invites you to a family-friendly afternoon of “Music in the Park,” an event featuring student musicians of the Austin Independent School District. The event will take place on Sunday, April 3rd from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at Wooldridge Square Park, located on Guadalupe Street between 9th and 10th.
Groups from various AISD schools will be performing including the Lamar Fiddlers from Lamar Middle School & Fine Arts Academy, the Dobie Middle School Guitar Orchestra, the Blackshear Elementary Fine Arts Academy’s Choir, and more. Pack a blanket and a picnic to enjoy while you listen to the music. The Austin Public Library’s Youth Services department will have craft supplies available for kids to make their own musical instruments.
This fun musical afternoon is planned in conjunction with the Austin History Center’s exhibit, “Making the Grade: Austin’s First Public Schools.” The exhibit explores the origins of Austin’s public school system with original photographs and vintage school ephemera such as report cards and course schedules. Visitors are invited to view the exhibit at the History Center (located next to Wooldridge Square Park) before and after the musical event. An in-gallery scavenger hunt game makes the exhibit fun for the whole family.
