Parkway at Powell Hall

Strings section A Rodger

10/9/2019 -- Last Friday, six music educators from across the district were invited to play at Powell Hall alongside professional Symphony musicians for EXTRA CREDIT On Stage. The event was designed to celebrate educators who teach music in the community with a very special side by side concert experience.

In total, 90 educators were selected to participate in Missouri and Illinois. Between them, these teachers had over 1,105 years of experience in the classroom and taught 20,349 music students.
