Perry music makes debut on Thursday


Perry Perry A musical composition named for, and in honor of, former Rockdale band director Jim Perry, will make its debut Thursday, under the direction of Perry himself.

“Perry’s Legacy,” written by Darrington White of the Malakoff ISD, a longtime friend of Perry’s, will be on the program at the annual Rockdale ISD Parade of Bands, which begins at 7 p.m. in the RHS Auditorium, with doors opening at 6:45.

It’s part of a Fine Arts Fair at RHS. See at right and page 1B for details on the visual arts event.

Perry was RHS band director from 1981-85 and was junior-high director for most of the nine previous years when Don Thoede led the RHS band program.
