Greenville City Schools Instrumental Music Festival, barbecue dinner to be held April 25


GREENVILLE – The Greenville City Schools Instrumental Music Program will hold its annual Instrumental Music Festival from 6 to 9 p.m. April 25 in the Greenville Senior High School gymnasium.

The festival is free and open to the public. Community members are invited to come celebrate with the instrumental students as they show their community what they have learned and prepared this school year. Performances will include the orchestra and band from the fifth and sixth grade, junior high and senior high. The Jazz Scene also will perform.

In connection with the festival, the Instrumental Music Boosters will host a barbecue dinner in the Greenville Senior High School cafeteria. They will serve meals from 5 to 7 p.m. to those who have pre-ordered tickets and anyone who would like to purchase meals at the door.

Customers have the choice of either a chicken (includes half a chicken) or a pork chop (includes two pork chops) meal. Both meals come with applesauce, a roll with butter, and chips.

There are a limited number of extra dinner tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis. Meal tickets are $8 a piece. Drive-thru pickup is available for those who have pre-ordered tickets.

The Instrumental Boosters also will sell desserts and drinks in the cafeteria. Anyone is welcome to come to the cafeteria and purchase a dessert or a drink.

Proceeds from the barbecue will help purchase new instruments and music, repair current instruments and fulfill other needs in the Instrumental Music Program.
