March was “Music In Our Schools Month,” and our Concert Band and Wind Ensemble did their part to spread the music with a public concert in the Page Theatre. The afternoon of great music included the Cotter Junior High Band performing as a guest ensemble. In all, the various Saint Mary’s choral and instrumental music groups presented five performances on campus during March.
“Music In Our Schools Month” began in Boston in 1838, and soon schools all over the nation were making music classes and ensembles available to every student. Quality music education for every student is still the goal of music educators throughout the country.
