In the aftermath of the of the events in Charlottesville on August 11th and 12th, myself and the band director of Burley Middle School, Andrew Laprade, discussed what we could do to help ease students back into the school year. We discussed fostering a collaborative community between our schools, and to promote giving back to one’s own community. Charlottesville and the surrounding Albemarle County are our home and we should take care of it.
The 8th grade bands at Sutherland and Burley have been preparing music for a concert that will be on Wednesday, September 20th at 7PM in the Burley Middle School Auditorium. The concert will be free, but we will be taking donations at the door. The donations will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Charlottesville.
We hope you will join us for a night of community and music!
