World Renown "HERITAGE" To Perform Baker Concert

 
The Baker High School Band has received an exceptional number of honors in the past year; the most recent is an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall: National Band & Orchestra Festival in New York, NY on March 31, 2018.  Given the adversity of 2016, this is a remarkable achievement and a chance of a lifetime for our students.
 
The Main Street Pilot Club of Baker, in partnership with The City of Baker School System, is hosting a performance of the world renown Heritage, a nonprofit chorus, founded in 1976 and directed by Clarence Jones. Their mission is to perpetuate the “Negro Spiritual”. The group performs a cappella and is not to be missed. On February 18th from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Baker, we will be uplifted by their music and be afforded a chance to come together as a community.  The concert is free to the public. However, an opportunity to contribute towards the band's trip to Carnegie Hall will be provided. 
 
Won’t you join us by attending this event and making a monetary donation to this effort?  You can contribute on the evening of the performance or by sending a check payable to "Baker High School Band". Contributions should be submitted to the Director of Bands, William J. Earvin, at 5903 Groom Rd., Baker, La. 70714 or through their official GoFundMe account, at Baker Band to Carnegie Hall 2018.
 
Thank you for your consideration and support, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
