What is Music in the Parks?
Music In The Parks provides music festivals for bands, orchestras, choirs and other student music groups. Their mission is to bring together students and adjudicators in a positive learning environment that will inspire the students to strive not only for excellence, but to make music a lifelong activity. After they perform, they go to a nearby theme park where they attend an awards ceremony.
We help out by hosting these schools and we receive an amount from Music in the Parks. Esperanza will be hosting this event twice this month, the next one is March 28th. So, this is a fundraiser for us. It is a scaled down version of the Aztec Jazz Festival. We will also have a small snack bar.
Each performance varies. We could have a concert band, followed by a jazz band, followed by Orchestra, or even a choir.
Therefore we need many stagehands to help move chairs and equipment. Students will receive community service hours.
