Another attraction added to Music City

Last year the Walls of FAME were added to the Music City event. This year we are adding a Saloon with a facade from the 1800's. Not only are we building this saloon, the volunteers working it will play the part.

Why is Music Important in Schools?

There are many benefits to having music programs in schools. Not only does it give those musically inclined students a means of learning about a field that might lead to a career, but also it helps all students have a positive, safe outlet for their emotions, provides a vehicle for self-expression, builds confidence and camaraderie among students. These benefits are not anecdotal findings from teachers and parents but actually have been scientifically documented.
