Banding together

The class's work often sees the real world. Students recently created a logo for the Albany Rowing Center's Ice Breaker Challenge 5K race and perennially design the Teal Ribbon Walk's T-shirt. This project has been unique because of the volume of work and the subject matter, said student Jazminn Motley.

"I think it was more fun because it was towards our kind of audience," she said.

Jones said these projects provide a great opportunity for the students to become acquainted with the realities of the design world.

"They can use their creativity but they also have to fit the specifications of the job," she said.

Though the students are doing a lot of the heavy lifting, the concert is the brainchild of Assistant Principal Scott Landry. He organized the band's March visit and reached back out to the group's promoters with the idea of a charity show. The only date they could make it to town was April 22, when school is not session and facilities wouldn't be available.

It was either go big or go home, Landry said, and the students have stepped up to make it happen.

"It's amazing to see what these kids have done," he said

The Egg doesn't come cheap. Between rental and staffing the cost is around $2,000. The students are fundraising to offset some of that (the senior class has donated $300) so the greatest amount possible will go to charity.

Tickets for the show are on sale through The Egg's website (theegg.org) and are $15 for students and $20 for adults. The BC bands Assortment of Crayons, J.A.M.P. And Wishful Endeavor will open for Deluka (the BCHS student paper "The Talon" described their music as "fun and tasty"). Businesses interested in advertising in the concert's program should contact Malizia at 439-4921 ext. 25471.""
