LISD Celebrates Music In Our Schools Month
March 8, 2019 — The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) recognizes March of 2019 as the thirty-fourth annual Music In Our Schools Month® (MIOSM®).
Since 1985, MIOSM has been observed as an annual, month-long celebration when schools and communities celebrate music in their local schools and the educators who dedicate themselves to bringing music into the lives of students every day.
“This year’s Music In Our Schools Month theme is ‘All Music. All People.’ Every day, in classrooms and on stages across the United States, music educators dedicate themselves to reaching all students through music,” NAfME Executive Director and CEO Michael J. Blakeslee said.
LISD has long been a harbor for exceptional student opportunity through nationally renowned music programs. LISD music teachers and students will be celebrating MIOSM through many performances throughout the district during the month of March.
