What's a highly regarded citywide school, cherished by students, parents, and faculty alike, to do when the District plans to take their school bus service away? Especially when they are concerned that doing so could have repercussions on student safety and school quality?

If the school is the Girard Academic Music Program (GAMP), the first thing to do was protest - and perform - at a School Reform Commission public meeting in October. And when that didn't help the cause, there's always Plan B: Do it again, only bigger. 

GAMP is planning a concert and rally for 6:30 tonight in the auditorium of the school, at 22nd and Ritner Streets in South Philadelphia. More than 500 supporters are expected to attend.
