A note from Katrina S. Axelrod, Executive Director and Co-founder of the Meriden ArtsTrust, Inc.
Why Your Students Should Join the CCCYO
An Elementary school music teacher walked up to me at a concert reception and said:
"Why should I tell my kids about the CCCYO? It is just more work for me and I don't see any benefit."
I stopped, thought and said:
"Werequire CCCYO kids to play in his or her school music programs.
You will see the benefits, because your kids will come back to you each week better musicians, your band will sound better at concerts and you'll have musical leaders in your programs. Then your parents will be more pro-music and they will join your Booster program. It really is a win-win. We can work together to make more music!"
Do you have a comment? Do we need community music?
(Of course we do!) Tell us why you think so!

Thanks, Katrina Axelrod, one of many at MAT
