“I am most proud of the spotlight we were able to put on school music programs which can sometimes be overlooked among all the other school activities. It takes a great deal of time and effort on the part of the students, their teachers, and their parents, to create the kind of performances we can see in this retrospective.”
–Bonnie Wheeler, Producer for Sounds of the Season.
