The Sound of (Parkside) Music

Parkside Community School - Austin Texas Montessori School

We all know that music is a big part of the culture at Parkside, and we are excited to highlight it at our 25th Anniversary Celebration! Joe has been dreaming of a Parkside Music Fest for years, so here’s our plan:

3:30-5 pmSolo Performances: Current and former students who would like to share their musical talents are invited to perform one song in a Cultural Challenge-type show. Performance slots are 5 minutes each, and we welcome vocalists and musicians to share original songs or covers – artist’s choice! Please contact Courtney to sign up soon because spaces are limited!

5-6 pm“Jam with Joe:” For this portion of the evening, anyone with a musical instrument and/or voice is invited to “Jam with Joe!” And whether you’re on stage or not, we encourage everyone to sing along to these Simple Gifts favorites: Simple Gifts, Froggy Went A Courtin’, Firefly, Little Buddy, Space is Dark, Buffalo Gal, Chlorophyll, Fishin’ Blues, Precious Human Life, and Accentuate the Positive. Lyrics and chords can be found in our new Parkside Songbook, so stop by the office to pick one up!

6-7 pmThe Eggmen Perform: We’ll be treated to a rockin’ set by Austin’s own “The Eggmen!” Get ready to dance and sing to your favorite Beatles tunes … yeah, yeah, yeah!

Sound good? Sounds great! Visit the event page for more information and to buy your tickets, and contact Courtney with any questions. We can’t wait to sing, dance, and play with you on April 22nd!

Parkside Community School
“At Parkside, the respectful way teachers treat and talk to the kids not only shapes their expectations for other relationships in their lives, it also sets them up for a positive experience of learning. There’s a balance of understanding and support, and the benefit of being known by caring, responsive people. We may live in a big city, but Parkside creates a loving, small town feel for every member of the community.
