We are delighted that one of our teachers, Amy Holmes, Music k-12, has been selected to participate in a very special opportunity with musicians of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra on Friday, October 7, 2022. EXTRA CREDIT On Stage at Powell will provide Mrs. Holmes with the opportunity to rehearse and perform a concert side by side with SLSO musicians under the direction of Conductor Norman Huynh. The concert is free and open to the public and free tickets are available here. We hope that many students, parents, teachers, and administrators from Oak ridge R-6 will be able to join us at Powell Hall to applaud Amy’s performance.
The benefits of music education in our schools are numerous and well documented. EXTRA CREDIT On Stage at Powell provides an opportunity to celebrate the educators who inspire the effort required by their students to learn to play an instrument and perform successfully in an ensemble.
Thank you for making music a part of your school community, and we hope to see you at Powell Hall on October 7!
