Fridley Public Schools presented a district-wide band concert Jan. 14 in the gym at Fridley High School. Students in grades 5-12 performed in individual ensembles and as a full group. This year’s theme was “Americana,” featuring music from U.S. composers. The full group piece was “Until Justice Rolls Down Like Waters,” a musical arrangement dedicated to the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
