Raleigh, NC – The North Carolina Music Educators Association is very proud to announce Governor Roy Cooper’s proclamation proclaiming March as Music In Our Schools Month in North Carolina. This is a first for the Old North State and henceforth will be observed every March. A copy of the proclamation can be found here.
In honor of this event, NCMEA celebrated by hosting two days of inspirational concerts in our state’s Capitol featuring performances from area schools. On Thursday singers from the Overhills High School show choir Perfect Intentions (Harnett County) opened the day followed by the Advanced Honor String Orchestra of Carnage Middle School (Wake County). On Friday Broughton High School’s aCAPella vocal group performed ahead of Enloe High School’s Quintet (both from Wake County).
We would like to thank all the student musicians and their music teachers for taking time out of their day and putting on wonderful concerts. We must also recognize NCMEA Lobbyist, Ashley Perkinson, for her help in arranging this performance opportunity in a very special venue.
