About 30 members of Georgia Tech's marching band took time off from their spring break to visit Augusta Prep Friday, where they performed and conducted music clinics for students.

A member of the band, Chelsea Fechter, is a graduate of Prep and organized the visit with the Tau Beta Sigma music sorority and fraternity Kappa Kappa Psi. Two of Fechter's siblings currently attend Prep.

Members of the Tech band provided clinics and tutoring for Prep musicians Thursday, and joined those students Friday morning for a performance during a school assembly.

The trip marks the third visit for Tech musicians to the Prep campus. Tau Beta Sigma members visited the school last spring, while members of the Tech band accompanied the Prep band for the school's first homecoming football game in the fall.
