For more than 30 years, March has been officially designated as Music In Our Schools Month®, encouraging communities across the nation to focus on and celebrate the impact that music education has on our youth and our communities. The purpose of our musical celebration is to raise awareness of the lasting positive impact that music education has on the academic, personal and professional growth of students. Our Music at the Courthouse event is the Douglas County Commissioners way of thanking our music educators, tutors, teachers, instructors and community programs throughout Douglas County, who understand the importance of bringing a quality music education in the lives of young people. It also will provide a stage to showcase the incredible musical talent of students in our local schools and music programs. #musicinourschools; #dcoregon
