Block, Debbie Galante
Teaching Music, v15 n3 p20 Dec 2007
In a show of support for music teachers, the League of American Orchestras has issued a call to action for the betterment of K-12 music education in public schools. The League's Statement of Common Cause: Orchestras Support In-School Music Education is consistent with its prior work with MENC on advocacy initiatives. According to League president/CEO Henry Fogel, the statement is a collective opportunity for orchestras to take community-specific action, and was directly prompted by orchestra's interest in advocating for better music education in schools.
