Rock out to fund music scholarship

Music students at Brookhaven Music and Sound Company will be performing a concert Thursday night at the Brookhaven Recreation Department on Hwy. 51 North.

From 6:30 until 9 p.m., the Rock Academy Summer Concert will spotlight the talents of students ranging in age from 9 to 17.

Guitarists, bassists, drummers and mandolinists will play a varied set list, which includes “Holiday” by Green Day, “The One I Love” by REM, “Stressed Out” by Twenty-One Pilots, “Gimme Three Steps” by Lynyrd Skynyrd, “My Church” by Maren Morris, and “I Don’t Wanna Stop” by Ozzy Osbourne.

Admission is $5. Children under 12 are free. All proceeds will go to the Justin Teasley Memorial Scholarship, which is given to students based on financial need.

Teasley, of Crystal Springs, died in 2016 at the age of 31. The Copiah Academy and Deltas State University graduate, who was a pilot for Delta Express Jet, had a passion for Christian music and enjoyed playing the drums. At his death, his family requested that memorials be made to an endowed scholarship at Brookhaven Music as well as Delta State’s commercial aviation program.
