Music Education in the Schools
The “Music in the Schools” program is intended to supplement and support the work done by Buncombe County and Asheville City public school music teachers. The Guild’s acclaimed project brings live musical performances of brass, woodwinds, and strings to ALL Asheville City and Buncombe County 2nd through 4th grade students. Musicians discuss and demonstrate their instruments and play a variety of musical selections. All 5th grade students have the opportunity to see a Young People’s Concert presented by the Asheville Symphony Orchestra at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium.
