WHY: A unique program in the continuum of services provided by the Texas
School for the Deaf (TSD), the Special Needs Department (SND) educates and
nurtures students from all over Texas who are not only deaf or hard of
hearing, but have additional cognitive and/or developmental challenges. This
event supports these “fighters and survivors” by providing critical tools
and equipment needed in SND classrooms at TSD.
A musician himself, TSD’s Assistant Principal of SND – Robert Solis, invites
everyone to come out to enjoy great music at a great Austin venue in support
of a very worthy cause.
“This is a really special event to me, says Solis. With this exciting
lineup, this year looks to be bigger and better than ever! Several of the
musicians have participated with us each year. Many have connections to TSD
as well. We’re all friends, or friends or friends, who just enjoy getting
together to do this to be part of a great cause.” Solis will perform with
his band, Mad Squirrel.
