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. The AISD superintendent Dr. Paul Cruz will offer remarks to begin the event. Groups from various schools will be performing including the Fiddlers and the Rockestra from Lamar Middle School & Fine Arts Academy, the Dobie Middle School and College Prep Academy Guitarists, the Blackshear Elementary Fine Arts Academy’s Choir, and Austin High School’s Mixed Woodwind Trio and Trumpet Quartet. Pack a blanket, lawn chairs and a picnic to enjoy while you listen to the music. 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.” 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.
