Teachers Perform! MTAB supports local food bank and music scholarships

Posted by Katina on October 5, 2009 at 3:56 am

I was raised in Bowie, Md. Last week, my mom received a call from my high school voice teacher Mrs. G asking if we wanted to join her for a recital today. Mom and I love Mrs. G, we’ve adopted her years ago as an honorary grandmother. So when she called, we said sure we’ll be there, no questions asked. The event turned out to be such a blessing – not only did I get to hear great music, I was able to particpate in an example of Song-in-action. The recital, “Teachers Perform!” was organized by the Music Teachers Association of Bowie. It had a music community (the music teachers) and a cause (raising scholarship funds for students to take music lessons and collecting food for the Bowie Interfaith Pantry and Emergency Fund).

If you would like to donate to either of these causes, check out their links above. The pantry is currently in need of school supplies, canned foods, and monetary contributions.

  • Thanks for bringing attention to the power of music education — it has more of any impact on many lives than the so called ‘academic’ subjects.
