Patrick Henry High School students plan to put on a concert Thursday night, February 21, 2013.
The best part is its all to raise money for another school.
Jazz Ensemble is a band made up of 35 students from Patrick Henry High School.
For the first time, Jazz Ensemble will play their music to help raise money for Forest Park Academy.
The money will help pay for students at Forest Park to take a trip to Washington D.C.
While there, students will learn about the capitol and what's happening in our country.
The Jazz Ensemble Director Cyrus Pace explains why his class decided to help out. “This is a good way to take what we do and use it for service. If you're just coming here to play music, it's not enough, we need to also be taking what we do, the art that we create and do it for common good," explained Pace.
The concert takes place at Forest Park Academy in Roanoke.
The show starts at 7 p.m. with a suggested donation of $10 dollars for adults and $5 for students.
