screen-shot-2016-11-01-at-3-43-06-pmSome students won’t embark on a journey to becoming doctors, lawyers or even politicians. Some students will strive to make a tremendous impact in their community through their gift of music. That’s why Birmingham City Council President Jonathan Austin with musician talents of his own decided to kick off the 75th Magic City Classic by hosting an educational workshop for Birmingham City High School band students eager to make their dreams a reality. Students were given the opportunity to come on stage and show off their musical talents, compose music and ask questions on how they can improve their technique and more. For more information about everything the Council is doing visit
