CONCERT BAND AND SYMPHONIC BANDS HEADED TO ATLANTA

We are proud to announce that the Symphonic and Concert Bands will be traveling to Atlanta for the Dixie Classics Grand National Adjudicators Invitational Music Festival. Dixie Classics has an excellent reputation for organizing, hosting, and running first class music festivals across the country. Jenks has competed and performed in Dixie Classic competitions across the country more than with any other music festival outside of Oklahoma. The competition is always healthy and the awards rewarding and meaningful.

In addition to the music festival, highlights of the trip may include a Tour of the CNN Studio, the World of Coca-Cola, Centennial Olympic Park, Skyview Atlanta, Hard Rock Cafe, Martin Luther King's Birthplace, the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, the Georgia Aquarium, Medival Times, an Atlanta Braves Baseball game, or other possible venues.
