What happens when top students from the band, orchestra, and choir get together for a special HHS Honors Academy Capstone Project? In a display of talent and altruism, three musically gifted students have found a way to combine their passion for music with a commitment to service. Drew Coffey, Ethan Assad, and Ava Tignor, known for their participation in school music programs along with several local rock bands, organized a benefit concert at the school, striking a chord of generosity and community support.
The concert, aimed at supporting the University of Memphis Summer Music Camp, holds special significance for these young musicians. Each of them has personally experienced the impact and enrichment offered by the camp, making their initiative not just an act of giving back but also a tribute to a program that has shaped their musical journeys.
Did you miss the benefit concert? Their band, Dream of Gardens, has agreed to perform on this year's GMSD holiday parade float, promising a treat for parade-goers.
The successful benefit concert and the students' ongoing involvement in community events reflect the vibrant culture of service learning at Houston High School. It showcases how students can effectively blend their academic pursuits with meaningful community service, creating impactful and memorable experiences for themselves and those around them.
