Community Engagement: Music Ed Summit

 On Monday, September 22, 6 elementary music educators from the Sioux City School District, myself and 3 representatives from local districts, met with Ryan Haskins, and board members of the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra for the first ever Music Ed Summit.  Discussion points included:  the state of music education, performing ensembles from the Sioux City Symphony in the schools, performances that our 4th and 6th grade students attend at the Orpheum, and opportunities for families from our schools to attend the symphony concerts due in part to the Gilchrest grant.  We are incredibly thankful for the partnership that we have with the Sioux City Symphony Orchestra for our students.  We look forward to strengthening that partnership.
