The President's Concert
Thursday, February 22, 2018, at 7:30 PM in Century II Exhibition Hall.
Gretchen Bixler, KMEA President, announced Robinson Middle School 8th Grade Band, Patti Sweet, Director; Salina South Middle School Guitar Class, Matt Gerry, Director; and the Wichita Wurlitzer, Brett Valliant, Artist-in-Residence, will be featured. Wichita Wurlitzer is pleased to be included in the concert.
This concert is a spotlight on the middle school student and it serves as the showcase of a traditional music class offering (Middle School Band) as well as the alternative class offering (Guitar Class), demonstrating that music can be for everyone. Music Educators want to build course offerings that will appeal to all students...not just the traditional band, choir, and orchestra students. Many districts across the United States have added piano and guitar classes to their curriculum!
Music programs in the public school enrich our young people's learning. Non-traditional offerings provide opportunities to students who otherwise may not be involved in music. Join us as we support Kansas Music Educators and their students.
There is NO CHARGE for the President's Concert.
