Goliad band to host scholarship concert

The Goliad Tiger Band will host the first ever Fred Rigsby Memorial Scholarship for Extended Studies Concert at 2:30 p.m. on May 6.

The concert in the Goliad High School Auditorium will feature performances by state-bound solo and ensembles students, the Tiger Jazz Orchestra and the scholarship recipient for this school year.

The concert is free and open to the public, but there will be a donation box setup for those who wish to contribute to this scholarship fund and help ensure future students can participate in educational opportunities outside of South Texas.

This year's recipient was invited to travel Europe with an all-star band made from the best musicians in Texas. For more information contact the GHS Band Office at 361-645-3257, extension 128.
