The Coachella Valley class of 2020 might not have the usual pomp and circumstance, but some might argue they will get something better. Desert Sands Educational Foundation and Coachella Valley Adopt a Senior Project have teamed together to share a tribute concert Rockin’ Farewell for the Class of 2020 of the Coachella Valley.

Local high school “garage bands” and artists will perform live on Friday, May 29, at 6 pm. The celebration will include interviews with students participating in the Adopt a Senior Project as well as local celebrities. The live performances can be viewed on Facebook Live and YouTube.
