Save the Music in Paradise Festival

Event Overview

On Saturday, March 16, 2019, Davis Senior High School's Band Director Thomas Slabaugh II hosted the “Save the Music in Paradise Festival."  The Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) Music Program harnessed the talents and civic awareness of students to hold an incredible event of student music performers that raised needed funds to support the rebuilding of the Paradise Unified School District (PUSD) Music Program. The event raised over $13,000, which will go to PUSD to replace equipment, musical instruments, uniforms sheet music, and more destroyed by the Camp Fire. 

The event featured performances by over 350 students in ensembles from DJUSD and nearby schools, as well as served as a unique occasion to reunite Paradise Junior High and High School band students to perform in a combined Festival Band.
