It is especially exciting to be able to share with our community this concert having been named one of the Best communities for Music Education by the (National Association of Music Merchants) for the fourth straight year,” said Florence One Schools Coordinator of Fine Arts Laura Greenway.
he purpose of the concert is to provide students the opportunity to learn new music; experience a new viewpoint about musical styles by working with a guest conductor; receive rewards for their individual dedication to the music program; and, learn how to work cooperatively in an atmosphere of non-competition with students from other schools, Greenway said.
The All City Choral concert is free and open to the public, and it expected to last for approximately 45 minutes.
