Music In Our Schools Month
Music In Our Schools Month is NAfME’s annual celebration during March which engages music educators, students, and communities from around the country in promoting the benefits of high quality music education programs in schools. The Hancock music program embraced this month in many ways. The month started off with an art-themed concert that showcased our very talented students and aimed to highlight the many ways music can be interpreted. Shortly after, the Chamber Choir and High School Band also went on the road to perform at the Oakdale Mall in Johnson City. Students were excited to be in an area with such great acoustics.
