Under the direction of William Talley III, the award-winning Asheville High School Band will perform its Pre-Inaugural Concert on Saturday January 12, 2013 at 3 p.m. in the Asheville High School Auditorium.
Admission is a suggested $10 donation. A silent auction will accompany the concert, for which early viewing will begin at 1 p.m.
Details about the event and auction items are available online at www.ashevillehighbands.com.
The band has reached nearly $70,000 of its budgeted $81,000 for the trip to Washington, covering chartered buses, hotel rooms, and meals for 115 band members, 12 chaperones, two directors, and the school’s principal. The group is optimistic that the community will quickly help it raise the final $11,000 needed for the trip.
