High school students can audition for a Florida A&M University music scholarship as the world-famous Florida A&M University music ensemble stops in West Palm Beach on a recruitment and outreach tour this week.
The ensemble tour will also entertain students on Tuesday, May 21 at 6 p.m. at Palm Beach Lakes Community High School. The “Working Together to Stop Hazing” tour is part of the university’s efforts to rebuild the Marching 100 with members who are fully committed to FAMU’s anti-hazing rules.
The tour features some of FAMU’s music ensembles performing such tunes as “Do I Do,” “Ain’t No Mountain,” “Sweet Love,” “There Goes My Baby, “Pusher Love Girl,” “Breaking My Heart,” “Before I Let Go” and “SOS.”
Presidential scholarships will also be awarded to qualified students. High school seniors are encouraged to apply for admission to FAMU before the event.
The tour began in Weston and stopped in Miami.
Admission is free and open to the public. Parents, teachers and staff are expected to attend. Palm Beach Lakes Community High School is at 3505 Shiloh Dr.
