Jungle Jukebox: A Celebration of Music at the 2024 PEC Spring Concert

The Program for Exceptional Children (PEC) Spring Concert, dubbed "Jungle Jukebox" this year, was a vibrant showcase held last week at the Oak Hill Middle School theater. Featuring performances by PEC classes from across the Baldwin County School District, from Baldwin High School's The Best Braves, to Midway Hills Primary's Super Music Makers, Oak Hill Middle School's The Colorful Braves, The Musical Braves, and The Rockin' Braves, Lakeview Primary's The Rockin' Knights and The Little Rascals, and Lakeview Academy's The Eagle Parade, the event was a resounding success.

Parents, family members, community supporters, faculty, and staff packed the venue, eager to enjoy the talents of students from across the Baldwin County School District's PEC programs. This annual event is part of a collaboration between Georgia College & State University and the Baldwin County School District, which has provided music therapy services to PEC students since 2016.

This year's Spring theme was "Jungle Jukebox," with performances that brought to life various jungle-inspired tunes and themes, telling the story of 'The Jungle Book' with a fun musical interpretation. Following the performances, a special reception was held in the Oak Hill cafeteria, where the atmosphere buzzed with warmth and encouragement, celebrating every child’s unique abilities.

The 2024 PEC Spring Concert was more than just a musical event; it was a demonstration of the power of music and the critical role of inclusiveness in education. It was an uplifting experience that will linger in the memories of all attendees for years to come. This year’s successful event reinforces why the Baldwin County School District has been named one of the Best Communities in Music Education for the ninth consecutive year.

Congratulations to all the performers, organizers, and volunteers who made this fantastic event possible.
