If you band student attends a live musical performance (band, choir, orchestra, or a musical) they can receive extra credit in band. Attending a live performance is the best way to build appreciation for music. Listening to an mp3 on their phone just isn't the same!
I will post any upcoming concerts that I know about here. You can find local high schools that will have free performances regularly. The Temple Symphony Orchestra has regularly scheduled concerts (a link to their website is below). If you hear of a great concert opportunity, please pass it on to me!
