Illinois Symphony Orchestra celebrates Music in Our Schools Month
The National Association for Music Education has designated the month of March as a month to celebrate Music in Our Schools. The Illinois Symphony Orchestra has taken an active role to help celebrate Music in Our Schools Month through our award winning in-school program called Music Matters. Musicians from the Illinois Symphony Orchestra will visit over 20 area elementary schools in and around Bloomington-Normal and Springfield to celebrate Music from Around the World throughout the month of March and April. Musicians use this opportunity to teach area students about the orchestra, about music from around the world, and showcase their own instrument.
