Music in the Park
Pack a blanket, lawn chairs, and a picnic. The Austin History Center invites you to a family-friendly afternoon of “Music in the Park,” an event featuring musical performances by student musicians of the Austin Independent School District, representing schools such as Lamar Middle School, Dobie Middle School, Blackshear Elementary, and Austin High. The event will take place on Sunday, April 3rd, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at Wooldridge Square Park, located next to the History Center on Guadalupe Street between 9th and 10th. AISD superintendent Dr. Paul Cruz will offer remarks to begin the event.
Snow cones, tacos, and beverages will be available for purchase from Kona and Rosarito food carts. 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.”
