Sounds of Young, Gifted and Black Concert

Wed May 31 @ 1:30 pm | 2:30 pm

| Free
Youth across the Austin Metropolitan area will dance, sing and perform musical selections. Children are the future and they’ve got talent!
The concert will be on Wednesday, May 31st immediately following the annual B.L. Joyce Parade supporting education in the fine arts. The parade will start at Huston-Tillotson University at 11:00 a.m. and end at the George Washington Carver Museum, Cultural, and Genealogy Center at 1:00 p.m. with the concert starting at 1:30 p.m.

“Mr. Benjamin L. Joyce was a legendary band director in Austin who founded both Kealing Jr. high School and Old Anderson High School Bands.” B.L. Joyce attended Tuskegee Institute and taught at Samuel Huston College in the early 1900’s. More about B.L. Joyce’s life and legacy can be viewed online.

We would like to invite you to attend both the parade and concert to create an end of the school-year celebration of our youth. Join us in demonstrating our community support of our young men and women in their hard work and ongoing accomplishments.
