For years I’ve wanted to see what the Oakland Holiday Parade was all about, and on Saturday I rode my bike downtown to take a look. Earlier in the week, I had interviewed the Skyline High School drum majors and the band president, and so of course I needed to see — and hear — the group in person.
The story was in Sunday’s paper, but has only just now been posted online. You can read it here.
What other Oakland schools working to build up their music programs?
