PBS Comes to Juneau to Film JAMM

JAMM continues to receive international and national attention as a teacher-training site and inspiration for other in-school El Sistema models cropping up across the country.  PBS in New York City (Thirteen/WNET) in collaboration with the Longy School of Music of Bard College, filmed JAMM as the pilot of an eight-part multimedia professional series on El Sistema-Inspired Music Education in the U.S.

PBS is dedicating an entire episode to Glacier Valley's JAMM program.  Jill Peters, the Executive Producer of the the project, was thrilled by what she saw during the four days of filming.  Jill shared her impressions at a Juneau School Board meeting:  "It has been my privilege to spend this week at Glacier Valley.  I hope you're not sick of the compliments, but every day, I have just seen more and more that has absolutely inspiring."  Here it the Juneau Empire article detailing PBS' visit: http://juneauempire.com/local/2012-11-12/jamm-filmed-pbs-series

The series will be aired sometime in 2014. Thank you, NorthWind Architects, for hosting a reception for Jill and giving JAMM an opportunity to recognize its contributors and advocates.
