Students Working Hard For 305 Live

305 Live is back.

A collaboration of professional musicians and music and drama students from Salina USD 305 schools culminates with a big show Saturday night. On the heels of last year’s successful event, the Salina Education Foundation and Joe’s Pet Project are back to host the event again this year.

Over 200 Salina high school and middle school are working together to promote, produce, and star in the show. The students will do it all, everything from lighting and sound to singing and performing during the show.

Student technical crews spent the entire day Thursday preparing for the show, and will do the same on Friday and Saturday.

Music includes songs from the Beatles, Coldplay, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix, The Ramones, U2, Radiohead, Joe’s Pet Project, and more. With the guidance of Ryan McCall and Nathan Tysen from Joe’s Pet Project a group of students event wrote a song for the show.

305 Live is a benefit fund raiser for the Salina Education Foundation.

The show is Saturday night at the Salina Central High School auditorium. Doors open at 6:00. The show starts at 7:00. Tickets are $10 at the door.
