CSO CELEBRATES MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS MONTH

In March 2019, the CSO will join with local educators and organizations to celebrate music in Chattanooga schools.

Read Across America Day
As a part of MIOSM, the CSO will celebrate music through storytelling. CSO musicians, staff, and volunteers will read Ada’s Violin and present the book to the music teacher or school library. In this extraordinary true tale, award-winning author Susan Hood and illustrator Sally Wern Comport portray the message of hope and innovation spread by the Recycled Orchestra of Paraguay. This year’s book is also available in Spanish.

To sign-up for a time, fill out the form below.

Visit the CSO’s Music in Our Schools Month website to learn more about the book and author!

Moment for Music
Celebrate Music in your school every day with Moment for Music. Developed by the CSO and tested by several Hamilton County music teachers last year, this includes musical samples curated for each school day and a corresponding book of information and other activities. Share these musical moments over your school’s PA system during announcements, at a morning assembly, or to kick off each music class for a short, fun way to put Music in Your School.

View the online guide here, or download the PDF. Email sspring@chattanoogasymphony.org for more information or to request a hard copy.
