Posted on 02/05/2018

Every March, the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) encourages music educators, students, and communities from around the country to promote the benefits of high-quality music education programs in schools.  Cabell County students and teachers will be doing their part in marking “Music In Our Schools Month” by participating in All County concerts and the annual Young People’s Concert. 


All County Concerts

Students in grades 6-12 will be performing in the annual Orchestra, Band, and Chorus All-County concerts throughout the month.  Dates, times, and locations for the events are listed below:
