February 24, 2015 at 9:16 AM (PT)
VALORY MUSIC CO. artist RAELYNN will visit five communities in the US and join GIVE A NOTE FOUNDATION and RADIO DISNEY for the "MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS TOUR" to share the message that music belongs in school.
Kicking off the 30th Anniversary of NATIONAL MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS month this MARCH, the tour will begin with a performance by RAELYNN at the WALT DISNEY WORLD RESORT in FLORIDA. RAELYNN will perform at FESTIVAL DISNEY as part of DISNEY PERFORMING ARTS, a national competitive music festival, where top school instrumental and vocal ensembles compete with other groups from across the country.
The week-long bus tour will make stops along the way where student ensembles will perform “Always Sing,” a song RAELYNN wrote for the initiative. A highlight at each location will be a special private concert by RAELYNN, with RADIO DISNEY on-air personality BROOKE TAYLOR hosting on-site activities at each stop.
The route includes visits to schools in five cities: SAYVILLE HIGH SCHOOL in WEST SAYVILLE, NY on MONDAY, MARCH 9th; BOWIE HIGH SCHOOL in BOWIE, MD on TUESDAY, MARCH 10th; MASON ELEMENTARY in CANTON, OH on WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11th; RIDGEVIEW ELEMENTARY in HOBART, IN on THURSDAY, MARCH 12th; and THOMAS JEFFERSON ELEMENTARY in JEFFERSONVILLE, IN on FRIDAY, MARCH 13th. On SATURDAY, MARCH 14th, students from HEAD MIDDLE SCHOOL in NASHVILLE, TN, will perform with RAELYNN at the GRAND OLE OPRY.
GIVE A NOTE FOUNDATION, in partnership with the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR MUSIC EDUCATION, selected each school to be honored for its music programs’ outstanding achievements and recognizing the important role music education plays in students' daily curriculum.
